Action for Health in the Americas (AHA) is the North American counterpart of Educación Popular En Salud (EPES) based in Chile. EPES has been supporting sustainable comunity-based public health initiatives among the poor in Chile for the last 28 years.
We believe in the power of people to promote their own healthy communities, given the proper financial, educational and technical support.
Delegation from aha board visits chile
The Action for Health in the America's Board of directors visited Chile in March 2011 In March 2011, a delegation of the Action for Health in the Americas (AHA) board of directors spent four days in Santiago and Concepción visiting EPES and seeing the work they are doing. The delegation was made up of Sheila Dauer (New York) Melanie Nelson (Minnesota) Meghan Ochal (Washington, DC) and Dale Young (Miami), who are four of the 11 US-based members of AHA. The most important part of our short visit (from March 23 to 27t), was the chance to see firsthand the wonderful work of EPES, especially its earthquake/tsunami recovery work, and to make a soul connection with EPES staff and those they work with.
