Designs for the community canvas: strengthening local participation in health care

Designs for the community canvas: strengthening local participation in health care

Newsletter, Centre for Development Studies, University College of Swansea 13: 14-18

The paper presents details of two health projects which provide good examples of methodologies which designed local participation into the planning process. One was a project in the Yemen Arab Republic, intended to bring about improvements in maternal and child health where there was little possibility of providing accessible medical care; the project's activities were designed to adjust to the resources, knowledge, practices and needs of each target community.
