Punjabi Community Health Services (PCHS) Calgary was recently established as a standalone not for profit society modeled on the very successful Punjabi Community Health Services operating in Ontario. PCHS- Ontario is a not for profit charitable organization and is a pioneer in the cross-cultural understanding of providing health and social services in our diverse Canadian population. PCHS Ontario’s Integrated Holistic Service Delivery Model incorporates a foundational understanding of the differences between South Asian and Western cultures, differences which impact the effective delivery of social and health care services. This delivery model recognizes South Asian cultural norms of defining illness, acknowledging social problems and seeking resolution, and leverages these to deliver services in a culturally appropriate manner for optimal effectiveness.
