The Community Health Council
The mission of the CHC is to provide healthcare to those who otherwise could not get it. In addition, because an “ounce of prevention is worth a pound of care,” the CHC works to address the reasons people get sick in the first place with social and educational initiatives.
Through partnerships with NGO’s, local government and other similar outreach organizations the Community Health Council coordinates much needed medical care. Our community care clinics run at little to no charge to patients and is heavily staffed by volunteers and locally trained professionals.
The Community Health Council builds relationships with local leaders and community groups to identify new projects and adapt to emerging community needs. Our ongoing commitment to collaboration and community enhancement encourages ongoing conversation that allows the community to be the key players in community change.
