About CAHN

The Caribbean & African Health Network (CAHN) is a Black-led organisation founded in 2017 in Greater Manchester to tackle health disparities within the Black community. Initially local, CAHN now operates nationally, advocating for addressing social determinants and reducing health inequalities for people of Caribbean & African heritage in the UK. Collaborating with Black communities and cross-sector organisations, CAHN aims to foster resilience, equity, and a social movement to combat health and societal disparities. They engage in forums across Greater Manchester, maintaining communication during critical periods, including COVID-19, and collaborate with Black Majority engagement from churches. CAHN’s flagship events, like the annual Windrush event, attract significant attendance. Their outreach initiatives, such as health sessions and awareness campaigns, strengthen community relationships and trust.
