3. COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND HIV/AIDS MANAGEMENT
A course in Community Health and HIV/AIDs management aims at producing a health worker who is capable of addressing health issues on a bottom up approach (i.e. from community to global perspective and critically analyze the related health problems with a view of proposing possible solutions.) The need to develop manpower in these disciplines has been necessitated by the fast increasing health problem resulting from ongoing processes like urbanization and HIV/AIDs which is coupled by the era of emerging and re-emerging infectious. For the country to cope with this, community health practitioners who will be able to tackle the issues from grassroots are needed.
Our curriculum has been prepared in accordance to the WHO target for ensuring cheap, affordable quality and easily accessible health services for all developing countries where a high percentage of population live below the poverty line i.e. they earn less than one dollar per day and thus the need for the motto “prevention is better than cure.”
