About AfroCP

AfroCP is a project in the Department of Family Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Witwatersrand, South Africa. We are striving to build healthy communities in Africa.

We are defining African Community Practice as: a community-oriented primary care strategy that delivers holistic quality primary health care that is oriented to person, family and community, with inter-professional and multidisciplinary teamwork. It includes taking responsibility for a defined population, public health approaches, inter-sectoral cooperation and community engagement. African Community Practice is committed to equity, social inclusion and universal health coverage.

This is strongly aligned to the International Federation of CHCs (www.ifchc2013.org/).

Here are some ideas for African Community Practice being built around the Chiawelo Community Practice.
