In bringing about behavior change in public health, we often focus on the individual mother, student, or farmer. We should not forget the community structure and norms constrain for encouraging individual health behaviors. This course examines the community context of the changes needed to promote the public’s health. We begin by examining the various definitions of ‘community’ and the processes by which we ‘diagnose’ or seek to understand the structure and characteristics of different types of communities.

Very insightful. Lessons can be integrated beyond public health
It was a very informative course that helped me understand the principles behind community work. The use of case studies to explain concepts was what helped me the most.
A very good course if one is interested to practise public health in the future ;-)
Very informative and give me the chance to have a new perspective regarding the essential role of community participation in improving and sustaining the health care system.
