World Health Day
World Health Day Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley
World Health Day, celebrated on April 7th, is dedicated to bringing awareness to the health needs of underserved communities around the world. Some staggering figures bring to light to this global issue.
Did you know that close to 400 million people around the world don’t have access to health services? We are not talking about access to a doctor’s office and health insurance. This statistic reflects the number of people globally that don’t have access to even the most basic health services. You might also be surprised to learn that over 700 million people don’t have access to clean water, further contributing to health problems around the world.
In honor of World Health Day, Chapa-De is highlighting the health disparity among the American Indian people, asking that our patients remember to live a healthy life and visit Chapa-De when they are in need.
American Indians have struggled with the following over the years, largely because of access to resources and lack of information about these diseases. Click the links below to learn more about Chapa-De’s services and how we can help with these problems.

In 1974 Chapa-De was founded for American Indians, a community that suffered from diabetes, depression, substance abuse, and a lack of basic dental care. Since there was a shortage of services available to American Indians, a group of local Indians opened Northern Sierra Indian Health, which would become Chapa-De. We are proud to serve those in need every day.
