Self care : a catalyst for community development

CROSS, Hugh

[Authors' abstract]: This paper presents salient findings from an evaluation of a programme designed to address the issue of leprosy related stigma in southern Nepal. The programme under the acronym STEP (Stigma Elimination Programme) adopted an approach that was dependent on the empowerment of people affected by leprosy. Empowerment was facilitated, primarily through selfcare group association. The premise was that, as people became increasingly self confident, as an effect of self-care, their focus could be shifted from the pursuit of personal goals to activities that could be undertaken for the benefit of their communities. As the self-care groups evolved, all 10 groups adopted a community development agenda. This paper outlines the projects that the groups planned and initiated and describes the method used to validate their efforts. It also gives results of surveys conducted to assess the impact of the programme on stigma, activity limitation and impairment

Community capacity enhancement strategy note : the answer lies within

GUEYE, Moustapha
et al
2005

Expand view

Th is publication outlines the rationale and strategy behind the UNPD Community Capacity Enhancement (CCE) programme and provides a guide for its implementation. The programme is an integral part of UNDP's Leadership for Results programme and is based on a methodology known as Community Conversations. The CCE programme is aimed at dealing with the underlying causes of HIV/AIDS, be they power relations, gender issues, stigma or discrimination. Most community methodologies rightly focus on awareness-raising and discussion; CCE focuses heavily on interactive dialogue on the epidemic's deeper causes and, through a facilitated process, community decision-making and action. The note also contains implementation guidelines and describes key steps in facilitating Community Conversations

Community capacity enhancement handbook : the answer lies within

GUEYE, Moustapha
et al

Expand view

This manual draws on the experience and practice of the UNDP Community Capacity Enhancement programme, known as CCE. The programme addresses the underlying causes of HIV/AIDS, including power relations, gender issues, stigma or discrimination. The programme makes extensive use of the Community Conversations methodology - an interactive and systematic dialogue with the community - as a means to policy making participation and action. This manual is designed for CCE trainers who will train others in the Community Conversations methodology, in addition to practising it themselves. Community Conversations provide a platform for people to think through all the repercussions of a situation, and the way their individual values and behaviours, and those of their family and neighbors, affect people's lives. Community Conversations create a space for mutual learning and result in new perspectives. They help reshape relationships in line with transformed values. They are inclusive processes for enhancing the capacity of all. If successfully facilitated, Community Conversations result in a series of decisions and agreements on ways to move a community forward. The development of skilled facilitators is therefore critical to successful implementation. This is a comprehensive resource, written in a very accessible language. The methodology can be easily adapted and applied to a variety of contexts

Voices from Zambian communities : experiences of HIV/AIDS related treatment in urban and rural settings. A report of community consultations on HIV/AIDS-related treatment in urban and rural Zambia, 2002-2003 with a practical guide on consulting individua

INTERNATIONAL HIV/AIDS ALLIANCE

Expand view

This report summarises the findings of two community consultations carried out in Zambia. It amalgamates the two separate reports originally published on the Alliance website as "Voices from the community" (November 2002) and "Voices from rural communities" (May 2003). The two consultations aimed to learn about individual and community perceptions, knowledge and experiences of HIV/AIDS and related treatment. This included questions on ARV treatment and the importance and scope of the involvement of people with HIV and their communities in planning and implementing treatment programmes. The consultations were carried out by multi-disciplinary teams, used participatory methods and involved a wide variety of community members, including people with HIV, local leaders and health workers. The community consultations showed that for communities to realise their potential as a valuable resource for ART treatment, people need information and education as well as effective clinical care and support

Equal opportunities for all : promoting community-based rehabilitation (CBR) among urban poor populations. Initiating and sustaining CBR in urban slums and low-income groups

ASSOCIATION AMICI DI RAOUL FOLLEREAU (AIFO)
October 2001

Expand view

Most CBR experience has come from rural areas in developing countries. However, even in large cities specific population groups - such as people living in slums or low-income areas in the urban peripheries - may face difficulties in accessing rehabilitation services. To address this, the World Health Organization set up a number of pilot consultations and projects in seven countries (Indonesia, India, the Philippines, Brazil, Bolivia, Egypt and Kenya) in 1995. This document gives a report of a final meeting of representatives of these pilot projects.
