Setting up Community Health and Development Programmes in Low and Middle Income Settings
Edited by Ted Lankester and Nathan J. Grills
This title fully covers the theory and practice of community based health care in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) era.
Written in easy-to-read English with step-by-step instructions, it is accessible to health care workers worldwide.
Copiously illustrated, this title is a source of both information and inspiration.
Traditionally, aid and development has been done for communities, causing dependence and side-lining of local leadership. However this book takes a completely different approach which places the community in the centre.
The focus in this book is on collaboration between all relevant parties in both identifying and solving health priorities within a community.
