Community-to-Clinic Linkages

A healthy community requires  ACCESS  to comprehensive primary health care services.  Unfortunately, geographic, financial, educational, and sociocultural barriers to care often leave people feeling that their health system doesn’t work for them.

At HAI, we worked closely with the Ministry of Health and local community-based organizations to identify targeted, effective ways to connect public sector clinics with the communities they serve.  By expanding the REACH of the health system beyond clinic walls, these programs help community members learn about health issues and the services available to them, while building TRUST in a system designed to serve everyone. 

SPOTLIGHT: Community-to-Clinic Linkages


Embracing mHealth technology is helping the Timor-Leste government provide lifesaving care to more than 50,000 pregnant women like Domingas by connecting clinics to the communities they serve. Since 2013, HAI has partnered with Timor-Leste’s Ministry of Health and Catalpa International to pilot, evaluate, and scale up the Liga Inan program nationwide.
