Community-based approach – Community health

Among the numerous existing definitions, we believe that the definition which suits our topic best is the one that defines a community as a group of people with diverse characteristics who are linked by social ties, share common perspectives, and engage in joint action in geographical locations or settings Within the CBVCT framework, the notion of community only makes sense in relation to preexisting action and longstanding communities are not necessarily ready to launch a community-based programme. Most of the time, a community is created when individuals or groups are able to mobilize themselves towards a commonly identified goal. This mobilization is based on shared interests and implies the participation of the community throughout the project. Thus, the proof that a community exists is the capacity of its members to act cooperatively. In order to launch a community dynamic that can truly bring social openness, a collective responsibility to deal with common preoccupations based on a willingness to take care of oneself must exist. Furthermore, this approach is not compatible with a purely epidemiological approach which works with clearly labeled population categories. Our definition of community aims to avoid classifying populations

- in agreement with the World Health Organization – underlines the role of Community Health as one of the strategies of Health Promotion implementation as defined in the Ottawa Charter. According to the ECHPN, community health approaches share the following main characteristics A collective base (a group of residents, a group gathered fora problem, a situation of dependence or an objective for an action or actions to develop. A collective identification of problems, needs and resources (a community analysis. All stakeholders can participate users, specialists, professionals (from the most diverse fields, administrations and politicians, which means the implication of the population in identifying the problem, to mobilize their capacities, for their participation in the whole process, and professional de-compartmentalization.
“Community development draws on existing human and material resources in the community to enhance self-help and social support, and to develop flexible systems for strengthening in public participation and direction of health matters. This requires full and continuous access to information, learning opportunities for health, as well as funding support”
