Guidelines for Training Traditional Health Practitioners in Primary Health Care
(1995; 86 pages) View the PDF document
Abstract
Traditional health practitioners are a valuable and sustainable resource that already exists in most communities. The training and utilization of these practitioners in primary health care, working in close collaboration with conventional health staff, can be expected to contribute, in many countries substantially, to obtaining more practical, effective, and culturally acceptable health systems for communities.
The aim of these guidelines is to help individuals and organizations develop training programmes that will enable traditional health practitioners to play a more significant role in primary health care and thus to improve health conditions in their own localities. These are merely guidelines, and as such, must be flexibly used to create training programmes that are appropriate for the needs and conditions in local regions and communities.
