Behavior And Community Health
"Empowering People & Community to Improve Lives, Well-being, and Population Health"
We pride ourselves in having an in-depth understanding of 1.) vulnerable populations, 2.) despaired communities, and 3.) the dynamics of populations within environments - communities. This understanding aids BACH in providing appropriate and effective behavioral and population health consultation, capacity building and technical assistance services at the individual, organizational and community level.
We believe there are many factors affecting a population's health, within a community. These factors are tied to a population's environment and their community resources.
What We Do
"wind-resistant house" - symbol of fortitude and readiness to face life's vicissitudes. BACH’s vision and mission are guided by the MFRAMADAN adinkra symbol. As this symbol represents a reinforced or well-built home - one built to withstand windy and treacherous conditions (reflective of Asante history - Constitution of the Golden Stool), BACH works to reinforce and support people and populations’ self- efficacy, wellness, and well-being.
We believe biological, psychological, and environmental factors can make people vulnerable to potential mental or behavioral health conditions and and/or issues. These conditions or issues can also have implications on a person's or population's health.
