Welcome to the Caribbean and African Health Network!

CAHN is a Black-led organisation set up to address the wider social determinants to reduce health inequalities for people of the Caribbean & African in Greater Manchester and beyond. We work with the Black community and cross-sector organisations to build community resilience, relationships and a social movement to reduce health inequalities.


CAHN’s vision is to eradicate health inequalities within a generation for Caribbean & African people.


Our mission is to lead strategic engagements aimed at influencing policy and practice in a way that ensures racial justice is embedded in decision-making matrices of service providers, commissioners and health services reform.


CAHN GM is committed to working in an inclusive, creative and responsive manner with communities and organisations irrespective of socio-economic status, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, and physical or mental ability.

Our work is conducted within a framework of respect, integrity, openness, transparency and accountability.
