Improving global health depends on the coming together of many different groups and individuals. The role of communities in defining and addressing locally important health issues has long been championed. However, past community-based programmes demonstrate the need for adequate support and sustained cooperation.

This seminar focuses on the role of communities for health in Africa, drawing on examples from Zimbabwe and Malawi in particular. Panellists will focus on the role of community level care workers in delivering cost-effective interventions, and economic issues surrounding assessing the benefits of community care.

Please note - this event will be recorded and live-streamed.
