CBR stories from Africa : what can they teach us?

COLERIDGE, Angela

Expand view

"Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) is an evolving concept. Its effectiveness depends on continuous reflection, debate and learning. This book aims to facilitate this process through the stories of five CBR programmes in Africa, told by those involved with the programmes and reflected on with honesty...Each of the five programmes has been invited to document their work, describing how its programme started and assessing the effectiveness of the approach it has chosen. They were asked to identify their successes and challenges, and to reflect on how difficulties are being overcome. Life stories illustrate the impact each approach can have on individual lives. The book offers itself as a reflective tool, to be used by practitioners. Each chapter asks specific questions of its readers, inviting them to draw comparisons with their own programme. The concluding section of the book outlines ideas for evaluating and developing their CBR programmes"

Summary of a 27-message discussion on the use of CD-ROMS and other media by health professionals in resource-poor settings. The discussion began with questions being posed by the Health Information Forum (HIF) moderator about the role of CDs in advance of a face-to-face HIF meeting. Most contributors said they or those they work with favour CDs over online access to resources because internet connections are absent, too slow and/or too expensive. Core uses of CDs are learning and teaching, research and resource access (e.g., journals) and medical data storage and retrieval (including images)
