Circle of Health International (COHI) defines its target population as women in crisis, specifically providing aid to women surviving in conflict zones and disaster areas. COHI works in collaboration with other aid organizations when invited into a country to contribute to women’s health programming. To achieve its goals COHI provides teams and individual volunteer practitioners such as OB/GYNs, midwives, trauma specialists, and public health professionals, providing them with the opportunity to connect with conflict and disaster affected women as members of international field teams.
- COHI conducts assessments, monitoring and evaluation, and ethnographic research initiatives to contribute to the improvement of quality, access, and effectiveness of services.
- COHI raises money for, and with, its partners to encourage their independent financial sustainability and success.
- Most importantly, COHI identifies women as leaders in ALL its partner communities and supports them in their goals of peace, health, and security.
