This heavily illustrated book is an indispensable resource for anyone involved in community health education. Methods and experiences from at least 35 countries are discussed, and the focus is educational rather than medical. Activities suggested for the most effective and enjoyable community education include theater, drawing, flannel boards, and other low-cost, popular teaching aids. Helping Health Workers Learn provides a people-centered approach to health care and presents strategies for effective community involvement through participatory education. This is an excellent companion to Where There Is No Doctor. Updated 1995. ISBN: 0-942364-10-4
