Assuring high quality primary health care through public policy and community driven health services.
The Community HealthCare Association of the Dakotas (CHAD) is a 501(c)3 membership organization serving as the primary care association for North and South Dakota.
CHAD staff supports community health centers (CHCs) through training and technical assistance in a wide variety of areas and provides information to elected officials regarding the impact of health-related bills to health care access at the state and federal level.
In addition, CHAD works with community leaders to find solutions to health care access for vulnerable populations and high need areas of the Dakotas. Supporting the development of CHCs to serve as medical homes for patients across the Dakotas is a vital step toward achieving our mission of "assuring high quality primary health care through public policy and community driven health services."
