A Participatory Journey

 

A Participatory Journey was born from the experiences gained by the Arid Lands Resource Management Project (ALRMP) in northeastern Kenya, as well as Intermedia’s other experiences with pastoralist people involved in the UNOPS programmes in Somalia. The publication provides a step-by-step ‘journey’ for trainers who are initiating and implementing participatory development among pastoralist communities. It seeks to provide answers to the most common questions posed by practitioners of participatory methods: What is the purpose of the journey? Where does it start? Which route should we take? What tools will we need? How will we know when we have reached our destination?

Managing a Dispensary

Managing a Dispensary is a manual that has been developed for the committee members who oversee, and the nurses who work in, primary health care centres. It is based on the experience of a pilot project in the Kwale District on the coast of Kenya that focused on the strengthening of the committees that were established to share in the management of the local dispensaries. Its aim is to communicate the lessons that came out of that project, so that they can be applied in other countries and places where there is the same concern to empower health centre committees, to develop the management capacities of the nursing staff, and to improve the quality of primary health care.

Sustaining Community-Based Health Initiatives

This is the third of a series of ‘policy briefs’ produced by the Community Health Department of the Aga Khan Health Service in Kenya. It focuses on what happened in the target areas of the Kisumu Primary Health Care Project. This was a pioneering PHC project that ran from 1983 to 1997 in Kisumu District, in the west of Kenya and beside Lake Victoria. The brief is based on a review of reports – and on a visit made to some of the Kisumu PHC target areas in December 2002 by Dr Salim Sohani, Head of the Community Health Department, AKHS, Kenya, and John Fox, Managing Director of IntermediaNCG, Kenya. Their main concern was to find out what kind of health care and health education were being promoted five years after the Kisumu PHC project had ended.
