Chad is reorganizing its health system and some of the structures described here are still to be modified in the future.

This system is PHC based and decentralised. Each of the 14 prefectures will be divided in several health districts. This partition of the country is under process and at the end of 1989, the new system has been set up in five prefectures. There is an important disparity between the 9 Sahelian prefectures supported by the Fond Europ de Dloppement (FED) project and the 5 other prefectures.
