About CHAM

The Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM) is the largest non-governmental healthcare provider and the largest trainer of healthcare practitioners in Malawi. CHAM provides 30% of Malawi’s healthcare services and trains up to 80% of Malawi’s healthcare providers. Our facilities primarily serve rural and hard-to-reach areas, providing crucial, high-quality health services to some of Malawi’s poorest and most underserved populations.

CHAM is a network of church-owned health facilities, hospitals and training colleges. Due to its strength as a network and status as a non-governmental entity, CHAM is able to provide lower-cost health services, promote diverse and specialty healthcare services, and quickly disseminate best practices and innovations.


The CHAM network is made up of over 195 health facilities and 11 training colleges located all over Malawi. CHAM works to coordinate, facilitate, provide technical support and develop health services among all members in order to provide quality health care and in all matters act for the benefit of the people of Malawi.

Thanks to the power of our extensive care and training network, CHAM is able to build upon the successes of its member units, increasing the uptake of best practices in prevention and treatment. CHAM facilities promote access to high-quality, affordable healthcare in Malawi, and are on the front-lines of Malawi’s fight for health equity.
