Mission Statement

Camden AHEC is committed to improving the health of the medically underserved - the ethnic and culturally diverse, the aged, the poor, the very young, the unemployed, the homeless and the uninsured. Particular emphasis is on providing services in the City of Camden and the Counties of Camden and Burlington.

Description

The New Jersey Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) were established in 1978, in partnership with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, as part of a national initiative to strengthen the health of communities through educational partnerships. NJ AHEC's goal is to enhance the quality and accessibility of health and human services and promote optimal health, especially for the underserved population.

Camden, Garden, and Shore are centers that make up NJ AHEC.The centers serve 8 of the 21 counties in New Jersey: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Ocean and Salem. More than two million people or 27% of the state's population live in this region - a region of ethnic and cultural diversity, with an increasing number of Asians, Hispanics and African-Americans.

Camden AHEC is committed to improving the health of the medically underserved - the ethnic and culturally diverse, the aged, the poor, the very young, the unemployed, the homeless and the uninsured. Particular emphasis is on providing services in the communities of Camden and Camden and Burlington Counties.

It is our job to listen to the needs of our neighborhoods and take action in helping them solve their health care challenges.
