The Action for Reset Dialogues - Episode IV : Community
Have countries learned lessons on how to build on communities in dealing with health and social issues? Are the essential structures and attitudes in place to honour the active roles of communities in health and support them? Are our health systems really calibrated enough locally and do they invest in public health grounded in communities? Is community learning more profound in the global south, compared to the global north?
In this episode of the Action for Reset Dialogues, Sanghita Bhattacharrya and Asha George, discuss the fundamentals for non-extractive community engagement, highlighting the importance of trust, the values of listening, and the ‘histories of prior engagement’. It draws on examples from different parts of the world to stress the long haul of building community agency in health.
