Community Health Centres deliver primary care services in combination with health promotion and illness prevention services with a strong community development focus.  In addition to promoting the health of individuals and families, CHCs are involved with initiatives that address social, economic and environmental problems negatively impacting people’s health. Governed by community members, and working hand in hand with the people they serve, CHCs also prioritize improving the health and wellbeing of populations who have traditionally faced barriers accessing health services.

CHCs WORK is a campaign that shares the effectiveness of the model, learn more about it here.
