CLS (Consiliul Local de Sanatate) Local Health Councils


Together for health !

Health care concerns us all. Simple people, in villages, municipalities, towns… expect this manifesting concern to result in health improvement. In order to promptly answer to their expectations, action towards health improvement should take a close start, right in their community. 
For people’s health, CLS can mean good news: with everyone’s involvement, no need for any more waiting. We can actually do something about our health. Together.


Why a CLS ?

•    U.N. “The right on health as international norm”.
•    All members of society have responsibilities regarding the realization of the right to health.
•    Improvement of prevention as a mean of health policy and cost refraining mechanisms.
•    Accessibility to healthcare (non discriminative, physical, economical, information).
•    Search to improve quality, in collaboration with private and public health sectors.
•    Elimination of a social polarized society with different health care systems (one for the better off, the state system for the rest of the population).

CLS ? What is it?

Local Health Councils (CLS) are informal groups of volunteers and professionals from a village/municipality/town who take actions towards improving the health situation in their community. They first make an analysis of the local situation starting from a social point of view. This analysis gives a direction to improve local health and health care through a mix of specific actions.
CLS’s are spread throughout the country since 2008 by FDAAM and can be found already in more than 10 municipalities: Bordesti, Cerchejeni, Sanduleni, Borsa, Stremt, Viscri, Apold, Cehu Silvaniei, Caiuti, Hurezani, Bucosnita, …. Some of them took a “flying start” because of the local health needs.


How a CLS does work ?

•    Analyze, discuss and do something on local health.
•    Focus on objective health threats or problems that needs a solution.
•    Try to improve people’s health.
•    Make proposals for policy makers.
•    Organize concrete actions (or projects).
•    CLS is a place for cooperation and organization.
•    Possible embryo for an ADAM (Association of Mutual Help).
