Abstract

A majority of people living in rural areas and urban slums worldwide have minimal access to healthcare. Without information about what to give a child with stomach flu, how to relieve the pain of a broken bone, and how to work against increased substance abuse in a village, the whole community suffers. Children, adolescents, adults, and older people are all affected by the lack of basic healthcare, such as vaccination, pain killers, and contraceptives. To improve living conditions and life expectancy, the people in urban slums and rural areas need access to a trained health care worker, and a functioning clinic. This text illustrates how to start, develop, and maintain a health care programme in poor areas across the world. The focus is on how people can work together to improve health through sanitation, storage of food, fresh water, and more.

Abstract

Outside back cover : "A majority of people living in rural areas and urban slums worldwide have minimal access to healthcare. Without information about what to give a child with stomach flu, how to relieve the pain of a broken bone, and how to work against increased substance abuse in a village, the whole community suffers. Children, adolescents, adults, and older people are all affected by the lack of what many of us view as basic healthcare, such as vaccination, pain killers, and contraceptives. To improve living conditions and life expectancy, the people in urban slums and rural areas need access to a trained health care worker, and a functioning clinic. Setting up Community Health and Development Programmes in Low and Middle Income Settings illustrates how to start, develop, and maintain a health care programme in poor areas across the world. The focus is on the community, and how people can work together to improve health through sanitation, storage of food, fresh water, and more. Currently, there is a lack of 17 million trained health care workers worldwide. Bridging the gap between medical professionals and people in low income areas, the aim of this book is for a member of the community to receive training and become the health care worker in their village. They will then in turn spread information and set up groups working to improve health. The book also explains in detail how communities can work alongside experts to ensure that practices and processes work effectively to bring the greatest impact. Copiously illustrated and written in easy-to-read English, this practical guide is designed to be extremely user friendly. Ideal for academics, students, programme managers, and health care practitioners in low and middle income settings worldwide, it is an evidence based source full of examples from the field. Setting up Community Health and Development Programmes in Low and Middle Income Settings shows how a community can both identify and solve its own problems, and in that way own its future.

Abstract

Quatrième de couverture : "L’action communautaire propose une conception de l’organisation sociale fondée sur des valeurs de justice sociale, de solidarité, de démocratie, d’autonomie et de respect. Elle se traduit, dans sa pratique, par une forme d’intervention qui reconnaît aux individus la capacité à être les principaux acteurs du développement de leur collectivité. Cette troisième édition actualisée met à jour le contexte historique et les diverses générations de pratiques d’action communautaire au Québec en lien avec les nouveaux mouvements sociaux. La méthodologie de l’intervention communautaire situe mieux les aspects dynamiques d’une démarche de changement social qui met en présence plusieurs acteurs dans des rapports tantôt consensuels, tantôt conflictuels. Cette édition donne une représentation plus juste de la diversité des tactiques qui structurent l’organisation des mobilisations dans les mouvements sociaux. Et l’on retrouve dans le chapitre portant sur les communications une réflexion sur les nouvelles formes d’engagement social que permettent les technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC). Pour insuffler ce regard neuf et plus actuel sur une pratique qui ne cesse de se renouveler, les auteurs ont fait appel à des collaboratrices et des collaborateurs qui conjuguent des activités d’enseignement, de recherche et de militantisme. D’abord conçu à l’intention des étudiantes et des étudiants en travail social, ce livre intéressera toutes les personnes qui cherchent une réponse citoyenne et solidaire aux problèmes sociaux."
