Community in African Primary Health Care Strengthening Participation and a Proposed Strategy
|Author: ||Good, Charles|
Reviews current experiences in primary health care in Africa, with specific references to key factors that influence the nature, extent, and outcome of community participation.
"The principle objectives of this book are to underline the need for and to propose a "complementary, socially sound strategy for community-based PHC" based on "formal cooperation among indigenous traditionally-based health practitioners, the community and biomedical workers." Overall, this short, sensible and practical-minded book does an effective job in achieving these objectives. . . . The book will therefore provide useful reference material for health and social science investigators, health policy analysts, and health practitioners engaged in the day-to-day management of African PHC programming." - Canadian Journal of African Studies
