Making pregnancy safer through district/muncipality team approach : Planning Manual-English
AbstractDistrict Team Problem Solving (DTPS) is a process developed by the World Health Organization in an attempt to improve management skills for solving a given health problem. For finalizing the DTPS process a proper planning workshop run at district health office level is needed. In this exercise the participants from the district form one team and work together through a process called learning by doing. Through this is produced a kind of proposal for solving health problem(s) based on the local needs and available resources. This is very much relevant in the decentralization era in which each district has a challenge to develop its own planning in response to the local condition and available resources. The experience gained in Indonesia during the past years has shown that it is crucial to be able to have qualified trainers to facilitate the process at district level. The aim of this manual is to provide methodology, examples and material to be utilized during training of trainers. These tools are supposed to not only strengthen the participants technically, but to motivate health managers to find the trough reason for each and every health problem that they have to face at district level .
