Ride in support of Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief!
CPAR works in partnership with health professionals, vulnerable communities and governments to build health systems capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa. CPAR works to address all determinants of health through our projects, from food security, water, sanitation & hygiene to gender equality, maternal and newborn health and stronger health systems.
CPAR currently works in Ethiopia, Malawi and Tanzania to improve the overall health of the communities we work in. We work in partnership with local ministries of health and local leaders to determine the areas of need and create projects around what is most needed. In all of our projects, CPAR works to address gender equality and ensure women are equal recipients and participants.
Founded by Canadian doctors in response to famine in Ethiopia, CPAR has improved the health of vulnerable communities in Sub-Saharan Africa since 1984. Our projects have helped increase food security and improve nutrition, strengthened livelihoods, provided access to clean water, improved sanitation and hygiene, and provided emergency aid.
