Child Health International


Child Health International

Child Health International (CHI) is a Winchester (UK)-based charity, with a proven record of success in improving the healthcare of children in Russia, Eastern Europe and a new project to help children with cystic fibrosis in India.[1] It was founded as the International Integrated Health Association in 1992 by Dorothea Ridgway and Roy Ridgway, the parents of a child with cystic fibrosis.[2]

Odessa University awarded Roy Ridgway a posthumous honorary doctorate for the charity's work helping Ukrainian children with cystic fibrosis and heart problems.[3]
