Community Participation

Community-based health and first aid in action (CBHFA)

CBHFA comprises a comprehensive approach to primary health care, first aid and emergency health preparedness at the community level. The CBHFA approach mobilizes communities and their volunteers to use simple tools, adapted to local context to address the priority health needs of a community and to empower them to be in charge of their own development.
