Our Model: Holistic Care
We define health as physical, mental, social, and spiritual. CHE has its foundation based on education that works to bring health to the whole person.
Critical to transformation is a participatory approach that builds on what people already know and assets they already have. This gives them confidence that they have worthwhile things they can share. Our model includes many other activities which show the people they have the ability as individuals and as a community to reshape their own lives and their neighborhood. People look at their neighbors with a new set of eyes through the use of Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) where the emphasis is on individual and neighborhood assets, not problems.
We implement our programs within existing government delivery and data systems.
We work with District Health offices to ensure program implementation is embedded in government systems, leveraging existing government infrastructures and personnel. We integrate the program’s impact data into the government’s data collection systems. This enables outcomes to be routinely and consistently shared with government partners.
How we deliver care
Holistic care = Timely care = Lives Saved
Who leads delivery of care
Community Health Workers
Through CHWs, communities are lifted out of cycles of poverty and disease. They promote good health; helping people realize they have assets that can be used. They focus on community assets and not needs.
The CHWs promote empowerment strategies that avoid unhealthily dependencies. They facilitate the processes that promote people themselves choosing priorities, identifying assets, and making implementation plans using available local resources. Through home visits, they provide timely care and make referrals for proper management.
