How do you describe the Community Health Centre model? CHCs in BC are defined by a set of principles and values that are hard to depict. To help communicate about this unique way of building health and social service designs, BCACHC has designed a visual tool.
In British Columbia (BC), CHCs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, because each one is designed and governed by the community it serves. Through this resource, we demonstrate the broad reach of the CHC model across rural, remote, and urban settings. It also helps visualize the values at the heart of the CHC movement - equitable access, integrated social determinants and health promotion programs, community governance, and interdisciplinary service-delivery.
Use this infographic as a slide in your presentation, as a print out in your classroom, as a graphic on your website, or a poster in your office.
