promoting Christian values

We empower members in their workplace, through government and in the media to advocate for vulnerable people; we publish peer-reviewed and clearly written resources; and make authoritative submissions to government and other official bodies.

CMF's work in ethics and advocacy covers a wide range of issues at the interface of Christianity and healthcare.

We focus on tackling difficult questions at the start and end of life, promoting good physical and mental health, defending God's design for marriage and sexuality, assessing dangers and opportunities with new technologies, and contributing to efforts to combat global health crises.

All of our written and audio/visual resources are meticulously researched and peer-reviewed to ensure the highest level of accuracy and relevance. CMF Staff and members write for CMF Blogs, sharing the latest news and comment on the stories that matter.

Responding to consultations our team of experts make authoritative submissions to government and other official bodies.

We field calls from journalists and editors regularly, to arrange news, features and documentary interviews on national and local media. We offer media training to members, and have an extensive resource and research library to draw on in debates and discussions.
