Community Based Primary Health Care (CBPHC)
Community Based Primary Health Care (CBPHC): 101 and 201.Two workshops offered at RoundUP , led by Jeremy Basset and Carol Meyen, veteran team leaders!!
CBPHC is not just a band aid approach to health care but a comprehensive approach involving the local community in assessing their own health needs (including but not limited to access to good food, clean water, doctors and clinics, and sanitation and agricultural practices). Working with the local community, the health care team prioritizes needs and works on these areas. This is a ministry "with" not "for" and takes longer, more thought and planning, but the outcomes are much more sustainable than regular medical teams going in once a year. Consider it like a disaster : charity (in the beginning) = medical teams vs long term recovery = CBPHC!
