December 2014: Welcome to our new website. Join in, connect and collaborate today.


Collaborative networking for community health

December 2014 - Welcome to our new website. Those of us involved in health and development depend increasingly on networks to ensure we avoid duplication, share ideas and resources and demonstrate to a fractious world that collaboration greatly increases the effectiveness of our inputs. We and many others are seeing that a new model of health and development is emerging in what we call the post Millennium Development era – the years from 2015 onwards. This model will depend on relationship, cross-sector collaboration and shared solutions.

CHGN was created in response to this. We encourage organisations and communities to identify and develop their assets, gifts and capabilities, so they can collaboratively respond to concerns, find and share solutions, and lead their own futures in a sustainable way. Join the movement today.
