Health Does Not Exist in a Vacuum...
As a physician-founded organization, CPAR has always been about health. However, we also understand deeply that health is not just what happens in hospitals and clinics. All of the elements that impact health - water, hygiene, sanitation, nutrition, social systems and livelihoods - play a role in healthy outcomes. Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief works with local leaders to meet the specific needs that will advance their journey to health.
