PAHO\'s Family and Community Health Area

FCH Cooperation Strategy for the Biennium 2004-05

What is FCH?

Family and Community Health (FCH) is a new Management Area at PAHO; which includes Child and Adolescent Health, HIV/AIDS, Immunization, Nutrition, Women and Maternal Health; and two Pan American Centers: the Caribbean Food and Nutrition Institute (CFNI) in Jamaica, and the Latin American Center for Perinatology and Human Development (CLAP) in Uruguay. FCH supports country efforts to strengthen public health interventions aimed at improving individual, family, and community health; increase access to health and social services; and use of integrated, evidence-based, appropriate, and sustainable interventions.

FCH will coordinate synergistic actions among its five Units and two Centers, and other Units within PAHO (health services, human resources, health policies and systems, non-communicable diseases, mental health, healthy settings and public information, among others) to address existing health gaps and future needs of the Region\'s most vulnerable and hard to reach population groups.

In its technical cooperation, FCH stresses the development of critical alliances and partnerships for effective country ownership and implementation of strategies addressing the MDGs to reduce the mortality rates in children under 5 (MDG 4), improve maternal health (MDG 5), promote gender equity and empower women (MDG 3), improve nutrition (MDG 1) and facilitate access to essential drugs, vaccines, and new technologies (MDG 8), particularly in PAHO’s five priority countries (Bolivia, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua).A specific focus is being placed on HIV/AIDS (MDG 6) and on WHO’s 3 by 5 initiative, to reduce transmission of HIV and increase the number of people living with HIV/AIDS who have access to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and comprehensive health and social services.

Strategic Focus

  • Child & Adolescent Health: promotes the design of effective integrated approaches, such as the IMCI and IMAN strategies for child and adolescent care.
  • Women & Maternal Health: promotes a gender, family and community perspective and the delivery of cost-effective comprehensive care for women.
  • Nutrition: promotes the central role of optimal nutrition, as well as diet and physical activity.
  • Immunizations: promotes the political priority and sustainability of vaccination programs through policy and legislation; and assists countries to improve their performance and surveillance.
  • HIV/AIDS: enhances national capacity for HIV/AIDS prevention and the provision of comprehensive care to ensure effective protection for the most vulnerable groups.
  • What’s New…
  • 10th Anniversary of the International Day of the Families on May 15, 2004
  • Virtual Forum for discussion of family health issues (coming soon)

Research Shows…

Family is the setting where health behavior and decisions are first established

Preliminary analysis of existing data shows that a comprehensive family and community approach, as the focus of health activities, can lead to improved health outcomes. Within a life-cycle framework, FCH is currently developing a specific Family and Community Health approach to strengthen efforts within PAHO and with Member States to improve family health, family lifestyles, and family and community settings through increased access to health and social services and use of integrated, evidence-based, appropriate, and sustainable interventions.
