Chuuk Community Health Center
The Chuuk CHC is located on the island of Weno, in the State of Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). FSM is a sovereign nation that signed a Compact of Free Association with the US. The Chuuk CHC was first established in 2016. The CHC operates through three strategically located service delivery sites: Neou, Sapuk, and Nepukos. It is a collaboration between the Chuuk Department of Health Services and the Chuuk CHC Governing Board.
The Chuuk CHC maintains a proactive approach to health by moving services into the community, rather than having a singular hospital location for healthcare services. The CHC also emphasizes cost-effective healthcare such as preventive services and timely provision of basic primary care.
