Identifying and mobilising resources in the village society
Implementing health and health-related programmes in villages has been a difficult and often a nearly impossible task. So difficult has it been that many of the manuals written for overseas assistance workers are documentaries of failed programmes, examples of what not to do. Failure in the past has generally been attributed to attempting to change local attitudes and practices without first becoming aware of the interrelated local customs and the sociocultural consequences of projected changes.
