A Guide for Communities and Community Health Workers
Enabling rural populations to protect and improve their health is a major challenge worldwide. In response to this, an informal ''healthy villages'' movement has evolved. A healthy villages project promotes local actions by community members, mobilizing human and financial resources to build healthy environments and promote healthy behaviours.
This guide is intended to provide community leaders with information to assist them in implementing and sustaining a healthy villages project. It covers topics such as water and sanitation, drainage, waste management, housing quality, domestic and community hygiene, and provision of health services, providing extensive source materials for adaptation to local needs and conditions.
