Welcome to the Alaska CHAP Program

The Community Health Aide Program (CHAP) consists of a network of approximately 550 Community Health Aides/Practitioners (CHA/Ps) in over 170 rural Alaska villages. CHA/Ps work within the guidelines of the Alaska Community Health Aide/Practitioner Manual in assessing and referring members of their communities who seek medical care and consultation.  Alaska CHA/Ps are the frontline of healthcare in their communities.
