What is a 'microclinic'?

A microclinic is an organically formed small group of approximately 3-15 participants who self-organize to manage their disease.
 
This social dimension is essential, as it counteracts an individual’s sense of isolation and disempowerment and leverages the power of pre-existing social solidarity to spread healthy behaviors throughout a community.
 
Microclinics are not simply support groups, but constitute therapy management collectives that address both the biology and sociology of major epidemics at a community-wide level.
 
For information, please see How it Works. And for a more in-depth look at our micro-clinic project in Kenya, please watch Chas Salmen’s Google Tech Talk.
