Health Action Teams
Community–based Health Action Teams (HATs) are a vital part of Apunipima’s community control model. Health Action Teams are made up of community-based volunteers who meet on a regular basis to discuss the health needs of their communities and feed the information back to Apunipima.
Health Action Teams:
Health Action Team volunteers are highly valued; most are members of several community-based committees and have to balance these responsibilities with work and family.
As Health Action Teams work for the community in which they live, each plan is tailored specifically to the needs of that community - it is not a one-system-fits-all approach. Each Health Action Team is unique and operates in a way that is best for them and their community.
