CHIMPS continues to explore partnerships with organizations doing work with underserved communities in developing countries.  CHIMPS was founded on partnerships with groups in El Salvador, but currently members have expanded their work to Liberia.  With support from US pediatricians Dr. Elinor Graham, Maggie Wheeler and Patricia McQuilkin, Liberia's Enhanced Well Child Care Staff has put together a manual about how to establish an enhanced well child care program:
