Siler City, NC - After 24 years of service to Chatham and the surrounding counties, Chatham Social Health Council has updated their mission and changed their name for a third time to Wellness & Education Community Health Action Network or W.E.C.A.H.N.

In 2001, the HIV/AIDS Council of Chatham County improved their mission and increased services which prompted changing their original name to Chatham Social Health Council. Originally a HIV/STD prevention education agency, today they provide a full array of services which include prevention education, testing for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis C, gonorrhea and chlamydia and HIV Case Management.

Wellness & Education Community Action Health Network was developed through the joint efforts of staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, and collaborative partners all coming together. With the updated name and mission, W.E.C.A.H.N. will serve to provide all original services with expansion to serve people with other health disparities such as high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease, smoking cessation, and diabetes.

Please join us in our excitement for this wonderful change. Our new website is We are working to get all our printed and social media information changed at this time.

New Mission: Promoting health and wellness in our communities by offering prevention education, testing, access to care, and support services for people infected, affected or at high risk for HIV/AIDS, STD's and other health disparities.
