The course is about community-based primary health care. It addresses issues of access, affordability and family or community-managed decision-making in disease prevention and treatment. Learners will gain knowledge and skill in managing health resources — from food and nutrition intake practices, personal hygiene, cleanliness of the environment and sustainable living. Training approaches will be participatory, practical yet with clear and understandable theoretical underpinnings for community leaders to adapt.
“Good health begins at home.” — Dr. Frank C. Laubach (1884-1970) Christian Evangelical Missionary
