Connecting clinical and community health services
Good health begins in the community, with access to clean air and water, healthy food, and safe housing. Resilient health systems invest in this foundation and build on it by supporting community health workers to offer their neighbors a trusted source of health information and basic care. Resilient systems also ensure that clinical services are available and accessible when needed.
