In 2018, 90% of all low-income countries reported having fewer than 10 medical doctors per 10,000 people. CHSC works in countries where there are less than 10 doctors, 40 nurses, and 5 dentists and pharmacists per 10,000 people. In Malawi, there are only 0.2 qualified healthcare physicians for every 10,000 people. This is significantly less than other low and middle-income countries (LMICs) within Africa. The Health for All initiative works to build the health capacity of nations by training family medicine physicians. The goal of the program is to advance the gospel by training physicians to be “missional” in their practice as Christian physicians in their own country. Through discipleship, teaching, and mentoring, our desire is to create Christian physicians who seek to care for the spiritual needs of their patients, as well as the physical. We take to heart the ministry model of Jesus, making disciples who will make disciples. We believe in both professional and spiritual discipleship. This initiative is currently active in Kenya, Malawi, Ethiopia, Egypt, North West Africa, North East Africa, Cambodia, and Mexico.
