In bringing about behavior change in public health, we often focus on the individual mother, student, or farmer. We should not forget the community structure and norms constrain for encouraging individual health behaviors. This course examines the community context of the changes needed to promote the public’s health. We begin by examining the various definitions of ‘community’ and the processes by which we ‘diagnose’ or seek to understand the structure and characteristics of different types of communities.

Very insightful. Lessons can be integrated beyond public health
I was able to have several perspective on community health and I saw a vision that there is hope for Africa.
Good course, but apparently not enough students to complete the peer review in a timely manner.
An excellent learning program..a great opportunity to gain knowledge..
