CATHIP Programme

The Caribbean and African Targeted Health Improvement Programme (CATHIP) is a partnership of six black organisations; Croydon BME Forum, Caribbean African Health Network (CAHN) , RAFFA International Development Agency, Black Health Initiative, The Royal Assembly Redeemed Christian Church of God and Enfield Caribbean Association.

What is CATHIP Health Hour?
Weekly sessions with Black GPs and Senior Consultants offering a free session on health-related issues that affect our black community such as:

  • High blood pressure

  • Diabetes

  • Stroke

  • Obesity etc

We look forward each week to members of the community joining us, as we talk about these different health issues, which are prevalent in the black community.

We have designed an insightful and interactive ‘Health Hour’ session, which takes place every Saturday at 11.00 am – 12.15 noon, via Zoom, YouTube and Facebook.
