The Copperbelt Health Education Project (CHEP) was established in 1988 to help respond to the emergent HIV and AIDS.
In 1991 it was registered as a company limited by guarantee, as a non-governmental organization through the community health service wing of the Kitwe Rotary Club. CHEP has its Headquaters on the Copperbelt, but operates country-wide. The organization has transformed itself into an intermediary that helps to build organization capacities for effective programming of Health in Development focused on averting challenges facing the community members including children in relation to Child Rights to Education and welfare, HIV and AIDS, TB and Malaria. CHEP’s vision, mission, values and strategy statement are highlighted here.
