Healthy settings: coordinator training : Report of a national workshopo, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, 25-27 February 2009
AbstractDescription: The practice of promoting "healthy settings" in Member States of the WHO South-East Asia Region began over a decade ago as an approach to encourage community-level health development. A range of practices spanning different degrees of success is in place in almost every country in the Region. The hallmark of the "settings" idea is the active engagement of local communities in creating optimum conditions for their health. They do so by improving the quality of their physical and social environment that is often the source of ill-health. Progress is indicated by how fledgling community health efforts generate successes that snowball into confidence for more complex tasks. Quality local action needs quality local capacity. Recent assessment reveals a lack of this in many localities. This short training package focuses on the importance of local leadership for program success and sustainability. Its six modules provide the basic awareness, management and leadership content needed to understand health as a development concept and to lead a "healthy settings" local team to success. This document is a report of the conduct of this short course in Yogyakarta, Indonesia from 25 to 27 February 2009.
