COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION & OWNERSHIP

COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION & OWNERSHIP

Community ownership and participation refers to mechanisms, systems and processes that allow communities to influence policies, planning, operation, use and benefits of health services. It relate to the extent to which health facilities engage with communities in order to make health services more fitting and more relevant for the local context and its specific disease burden. Community participation aims at improving acceptability of health services by the community and strengthening behaviors that promote and preserve health. Health facilities engage with communities through formal and informal leadership structures and by partnering with local groups, initiatives and plans. Community ownership and participation in health service delivery assumes astute appreciation and knowledge of prevailing local traditions and believes that may influence health seeking behavior.

CHAG continued to implement the National PHC policy through its focus on basic health care provision and maintaining and extending outreach services through community consultation and engagement. Across the network, communities were generally consulted to improve acceptability of services. However, extent and quality of community engagement can improve across the network. The theme of the 44th annual CHAG Conference and Council Meeting (ACCM) was to improve community participation for improved health outcomes and an concept brief was produced (Figure 1). Although some CHAG facilities have clearly demonstrated the positive impact of community engagement on improved health indices, dissemination and application of these examples could be improved.
