This report discusses appropriate mechanisms for community involvement in different social, economic, and political contexts and identifies the corresponding requirements for training health personnel and strengthening communities. Participatory methods are suggested for training health workers. It is suggested that monitoring and evaluation involves a mixture of quantitative and qualitative techniques.
This article will be of interest to health planners and managers. Researchers will be interested that although much of this article is devoted to information and participation, the techniques advocated are to do with RRA rather than PRA.
