Community Health Aide Program

The Community Health Aide Program (CHAP) consists of a network of approximately 550 Community Health Aides/Practitioners (CHA/Ps) in over 170 rural Alaska villages. CHA/Ps work within the guidelines of the Alaska Community Health Aide Manual (CHAM) in assessing and providing emergent, acute, and chronic care to residents of their respective communities. Alaska CHA/Ps are the front line of healthcare in their communities.
