Committee for Health in Southern Africa records, 1981-1998, bulk 1985-1991

Series I: Correspondence, 1981-1995

This series has been divided into two subseries: alphabetical correspondence, filed either by individual correspondent name or by organization title, and chronological correspondence. There is considerable overlap and all files contain a similar mix of letters and memos between CHISA members, other human rights organizations, and medical professionals. Many discussions relate to event planning or fundraising, although others are more in-depth conversations on health issues. CHISA's president Mervyn Susser is well represented, and these files may have come from his office. There is also some material on the Maputo Workshop, but correspondence files relating specifically to this event can be found in Series III.

External users and Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site at RBML. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site at Avery, Starr, and Burke. After clicking 'Submit Request', users will login with their UNI and password (Columbia affiliates) or their special collections account (external users). Appointments are required and will be arranged according to each individual repository's policy.
