Guidelines for preventive and social medicine/community medicine/community health curriculum in the undergraduate medical education
AbstractHealth is a basic human right and WHO is committed to the people's health. Medical practitioners play a pivotal role in providing health care to the people. The majority of people in countries of the South-East Asia Region have limited access to medical practitioners. In most situations, curative care is taking a bigger share than preventive, promotive and rehabilitative care. To address this problem an appropriate curriculum is essential to guide the educators, learners, administrators and other stakeholders. The WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia recognized the need to review the existing curriculum of Preventive and Social Medicine/Community Medicine/Community Health to make undergraduate education more appropriate for the current needs of the people. These guidelines were prepared with involvement of senior experts in this discipline from academic institutions in countries in the Region. It is expected that both teachers and students will benefit from these guidelines, which in turn will improve the health status of people. These guidelines are flexible and have scope for modification according to the country or the institutional context.
