We Build Knowledge to Save Children’s Lives

Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance collects, analyzes and shares evidence to prevent child mortality in regions where it is highest.

Promoting Change

The CHAMPS Story

An Organization Built for Change

Our innovative approach to collecting, analyzing and sharing the causes of stillbirth and death in children under five was created to propel interventions that can save the lives of millions of children.

Our Roots

CHAMPS was born of a need to better understand the definitive causes of child mortality in places where it is highest, and use that data to drive interventions to save child's lives.
