Maniilaq Assocation – Noorvik Clinic – ALASKA
P.O. Box 189
Noorvik, AK 99763
The Community Health Aide/Practitioner program (CHAP) operates eleven remote village clinics. The community has a village clinic, community hall, two stores, and a post office. A piped water and sewage system has recently been constructed, providing household plumbing to some residences. Most clinics have a full time staff of two to four Health Aides who service about one-half of the total patient contacts. All clinics are directly connected to the Maniilaq Health Center in Kotzebue, providing access to all medical records and medical libraries as well as visual and audio teleconferencing capability to consult doctors. Using a computer telemedicine unit, village clinics can send electronic pictures to the Maniilaq Health Center, where physicians view the images, making long-distance diagnosis easier and more accurate.
