Integral Community Health
From Individuals to Communities
Since 1936 members of HCFI have been seeking to serve the Lord in their workplace, giving special attention to the care of the whole person: physical, psychological, social and spiritual.
The scope of the ministry has grown:
- from hospital to health field, from health field to the community
- from care to prevention, from prevention to health promotion.
After reaching patients and their families, we seek to train them to bring transformation in their communities and to be part of God’s transformation of their nation.
Integral Community Health (ICH) is part of the answer.
