The International Center for Child Health and Development (ICHAD)’s mission is to contribute to the reduction of poverty and the improvement of health and overall developmental outcomes for youth and families in low-resource communities, particularly those in sub-Saharan Africa.

ICHAD also seeks to increase public awareness and support for asset-based social programs, as well as to promote research-driven policy and programming.
