Community Health Information Programme (chip)
Communities south of the coastal areas of Libya have had little or no access to medical facilities, let alone educational material about medical issues, yet approximately 900,000 people live in this vast region. To combat this problem, World for Libya is proposing a community health and information programme (CHIP). is will entail mobile clinics travelling to remote areas in Libya to provide diagnostic primary care as well as basic health services and education.
To achieve this, World for Libya will work with other aid organizations as well as the Ministry of Health in Libya. e services provided by the clinics will include health screenings, vaccinations, and providing educational health material. Additionally, World for Libya will compile a medical database of the communities it reaches. is data will form the basis of a medical census which will lay the foundations for the regional community healthcare in the future.
