Our Network

A Global Network Saving Lives

CHAMPS is a global network whose partners understand that maximizing the life-saving impact of our work requires collaboration and data-sharing across teams, disciplines, organizations and borders.

Delivering Help Where It’s Needed Most

Every individual and organization in the CHAMPS network plays a key role in reducing child mortality.

Low- and middle-income countries bear a disproportionate burden of global child mortality. Currently, South Asia and Africa account for 82% of under-five child deaths. Children in Africa are 15 times more likely to die before the age of five than children in high-income countries.

The CHAMPS network is a collaborative effort of global partners that includes ongoing engagement with:

  • National Public Health Institutes
  • Governments
  • In-country organizations
  • Emory Global Health Institute
  • The International Association of National Public Health Institutes
  • The Task Force for Global Health
  • The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • WHO and UNICEF


CHAMPS communities are shaped by a host of characteristics including ethnicity, education, local customs, and religious practices. We work in rural and urban settings with immensely diverse ethnic groups who speak different languages and practice a broad spectrum of religions. We are proud to work in collaboration with community and religious leaders to understand and navigate local contexts.
