As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, Dignity Health directed Community Health International Program (CHIP) grant funds to address this crisis in the communities where we had established partnerships.  In addition to the health crisis, lower income countries faced tremendous financial hardships due to the economic downturn.  Grants were provided to intervene by providing basic needs for the most vulnerable communities as well as community preventive health education and protective equipment for healthcare staff.
