  • Mission:
  • After 11 years of performing life-changing surgeries on disabled orphaned children living in Chinese orphanages, the China Pediatrics Foundation(CCPF) established the International Healthcare Leadership (IHL) program to directly train Chinese healthcare professionals in the areas of healthcare policy and management. The ultimate goal of IHL is to develop a sustainable approach to improving access to healthcare in both rural and urban areas throughout China.

    IHL will offer a 5-week certificate program at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health where 15-30 Chinese healthcare professionals will gain executive level training. The IHL curriculum will include, but not be limited to, health policy and management, health economics, biostatistics and epidemiology, and environmental health.

    Armed with the knowledge and tools necessary to address current systemic barriers to healthcare distribution, these Chinese healthcare professionals will return to their communities as “change agents” to provide better health services for underserved communities. It is estimated that after five years of this program, over 100 Chinese healthcare leaders will be part of an IHL alumni network affecting the health of millions.

  • History:
  • Children of China Pediatrics Foundation (CCPF) was founded eleven years ago by Gena Palumbo, an adoptive parent of a baby girl from China. Finding it difficult to forget the children left behind in the orphanages, Ms. Palumbo organized a team of volunteer doctors and nurses to provide direct medical care to which these children otherwise would never have had access.

    The assembled team of volunteers and members of CCPF’s Medical Board is comprised of physicians from some of leading medical centers in the United States. The Medical Director of CCPF is David P. Roye, Jr, MD, who is currently the Director of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City and the winner of 2009 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Humanitarian of the Year Award. Since its founding, CCPF has completed ten medical missions, performing hundreds of operations on orphans from all over China. Volunteer doctors, nurses and technicians from hospitals throughout the United States have corrected cleft lip and palates, performed skin grafts, orthopedic, urological and general pediatric surgeries.

    Education of Chinese physicians and nurses has always been an essential part of CCPF’s mission in order to ensure that children treated by CCPF continue to receive quality care after its team has left the country. The creation of IHL expands this educational and public goal at the highest level by addressing the systemic healthcare barriers. In 2008, IHL hosted its first meeting in Beijing with faculty from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and Renmin University of Beijing to develop a curriculum focused on public healthcare policy and management.
