Investing in community health

Building resilient and sustainable community health systems


Nutrition and health

As long as the health of the communities is not in their hands, we still have a long way to go. Government has a mandate to deliver healthcare for its people. But at the same time, government cannot do that alone. Communities — if well sensitised, if services can reach them — will be able to transfer this knowledge, information and services to the people living in the community.
