Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
The first step to improving your health is understanding your health status. Across Jordan, many people have done just that with the help of volunteer committees offering free screenings and advocating for healthy lifestyles.
Community Health Committees (CHCs) – formed in collaboration with the USAID-funded, Abt Associates-led Health Systems Strengthening II project and the Jordan Ministry of Health – help identify the local community’s health needs and priorities and implement plans based on these priorities. Their overarching goal is to improve the community’s health.
