Welcome to ICATCH!

Our International Community Access to Child Health (ICATCH) program is dedicated to improving the health of children in some of the poorest regions of the world.

International Community Access to Child Health (ICATCH) is a highly dedicated team of pediatricians from US and around the world working together to provide funding for pediatric community health projects to healthcare partners in low-income and low-middle- income countries. Each year, we award up to 3-year grants worth $2000 per year to up to 7 healthcare providers or educators working to advance child health. Since our launch in 2007, ICATCH has funded 98 projects in 42 countries. In 2023, we will celebrate our hundredth grant.

In addition to partnerships with the Section on Global Health and other AAP sections, we are supported by donations from pediatric colleagues and individuals with a drive for global health and helping children in need. Please consider donating online here or via check (c/o AAP Development, PO Box 7525, Carol Stream, IL 60197-7525 ).
