Village health care. An example from Senegal

Gate (2/85): 12-15

Village health care. An example from Senegal

Taking the development committee of Bamba-Thailene in the east of Senegal as an example, the article describes the achievements of village self-help groups in the field of health care including the training of health workers and midwives, the setting-up of health posts and a welfare service for mothers and children. Without belittling these achievements, critical attention is given to the question of what the programme has actually accomplished in the eight years since its inception.
