Rethinking Philanthropy to Strengthen Maternal Health

rethinking philanthropy to strengthen maternal health

CHAP works at the intersection of government and community to maximize the impact of health policies and programs.

Healthcare in the United States will change—

With worse access to care and poorer population health outcomes compared to other wealthy countries, healthcare today is primarily ‘sick care’—incentivizing expensive, clinical-based interventions and caring for people once they are unwell.

We see new systems emerging.

Throughout the country, birthing people are advocating for equity

Supporting local, person-to-person, dignified care

For over a decade, our investments and technical expertise have helped sustain and strengthen community health systems from Nigeria to New Jersey.

Today, we are bringing important lessons of scalability, sustainability, and collaboration from our global systems-change work to the field of maternal health and building bridges to long-term financial sustainability for community-driven care.

Working together to achieve full birth equity in New Jersey

Building on the momentum created by First Lady Tammy Murphy, who—together with numerous governmental and private partners—launched Nurture NJ, CHAP was a founding member of the New Jersey Birth Equity Funders Alliance. We continue to serve as lead stewards of this coordinated, community-driven philanthropic response to New Jersey’s maternal health challenges, with missions to advance community-based solutions to maternal mortality and birth equity and serve as a model for the wider field.

Coordinated efforts can dramatically impact community health outcomes. With your engagement, we can go from moment to movement and ensure the systems designed to support health and wellness across the nation are equitably in service to all.
