Title: Community health management: a problem-solving approach
Authors: World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean
Issue Date: 2006
Language: English
Abstract: While many training methodologies have succeeded in developing the management capacities of health professionals overall, the intended impact in terms of achieving specific improvements in health services has not been fully realized. Experience has shown that whenever health care personnel are closely involved in the decision-making process, health services improve and more confident relations develop with users and the community as a whole. In the community health management approach, training is organized on the basis of teams composed of staff working in the same health unit and serving a defined community. Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean strongly advocates the use of community health management, as a practical approach for developing the managerial capabilities of district health professionals. Through community health management, teams enhance their capabilities for sound planning and optimal use of available resources. This training manual provides a tool to help primary health care staff to work in collaboration with the community and other sectors
