CRS’ health and social service programs are carried out in partnership with local public, private, and faith-based institutions. CRS uses a systems approach to address the most prevalent health conditions among vulnerable groups, encourage community participation, and ensure sustainability. Because of CRS’ commitment to social justice and equity, we seek to increase access to key services in the most rural, remote, and marginalized communities. Our areas of expertise include: Nutrition, Maternal, newborn and child health, Wellbeing of vulnerable children, Faith-based health system strengthening, Network development and strengthening, HIV care and treatment, Malaria, and Tuberculosis.
