Strengthening Community-Based Health

The philosophy of UMCOR is that health is attainable, accessible, and sustainable by people for themselves and their communities if they are given the opportunity.

Community-based health care empowers people to take charge of their own lives and health, so that sustainable achievement in improving health is possible. The model that UMCOR follows supports effective community awareness and education programs and fosters human and economic resource development.  UMCOR also values local cultural practices as a source of preventive and curative health.
