Resources / Nga rauemi

The Community Health Information Centre (CHIC) provides free health resources within the Community and Public Health geographical area covering Canterbury, South Canterbury, the West Coast and the Chatham Islands.

This page is the gateway to ordering health resources online, including pamphlets, booklets and posters.

You can order up to 100 copies of any resource online, unless specified otherwise or if quantities are limited.

Find out more about online ordering and the delivery of your order.
