Setting up community health and development programmes in low and middle income settings
Fourth Edition. Edited by Ted Lankester and Nathan J Grills
‘This book contains all a health worker needs to know when setting up a community health programme in a rural or urban setting. I strongly recommend this book and congratulate the authors.’ Professor David Morley
Across the world, millions of people do not have access to adequate health care. As a result, children and adults suffer from illnesses that could be prevented or treated, if they knew what to do.
This book provides clear and practical advice on how to start, develop and maintain health care programmes in poor areas of the world. It places the community at the centre, focusing on how people can work together to identify and solve their own problems. It also discusses how communities can work effectively with existing health providers to improve local services.
This fourth edition of the book includes chapters on disability and mental health. There is also a chapter on helping communities manage disaster risk.
The book is published by Oxford University Press in association with Arukah Network for Global Community Health (www.arukahnetwork.org). Visit www.oup.com/academic to buy or download the book. Or write to Oxford University Press, 198 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10016, USA.
