Webinar: Engaging Communities to Improve Maternal and Child Health
Engaging Communities to Improve Maternal and Child Health | December 2017 | Webinar featuring Henry Perry, MD, MPH, PhD, Senior Scientist, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Connie Gates, MPH, Jamkhed International – North America. Many Christian programs have been pioneers of the principles and practice of community-based primary health care (CBPHC). These experiences also influenced and informed WHO, resulting in the international Conference in Alma Ata and its Declaration in 1978. Christian organizations continue to develop these approaches and understand their benefits, engaging and empowering communities to improve their own health. The webinar includes a review of 700 projects using CBPHC to improve Maternal and Child Health which were featured in the book, Engaging Communities for Improving Mothers’ and Children’s Health: Reviewing the Evidence of Effectiveness in Resource-Constrained Settings.
