Overview

The book provides researchers, students, and practitioners in public health, anthropology, and related fields with a brief introduction to a health-care model, Community Participatory Involvement (CPI), which for 20 years has proved successful in fighting global health problems. CPI differs from other community-based models in that it involves a unique synergy of local, civil, and political authorities. Using a South American cholera epidemic as an example, the book -explains in step-by-step detail how the CPI model is used;-includes teaching activities, a list of important tools, and model workshops;-demonstrates how the CPI model can be replicated to deal with a diverse range of public concerns, from the control of infectious diseases to animal husbandry to teacher education.

Reviews

Community Participatory Involvement is an incredibly good book. The individual stories are moving and instructive. I am extremely pleased with the clear descriptions of how to do community work, perfect for my students drawn from nursing, public health, anthropology, and elsewhere. The scientific elements are all there: ethnography and epidemiology working together to provide a rich descriptive data base. In addition, the authors show that an understanding of structural violence in a historical context is essential for making positive social changes at the local level. The use of a participatory framework is particularly well described, making it easy for students and practitioners at both local and national levels to develop and maintain CPI projects. I recommend the book highly. Noel Chrisman, Professor, University of Washington School of Nursing


A clearly written, compelling narrative, this book personalizes one intervention model, conveying poignant real-world experiences and contributing to the dialogue on international public health. Community Participatory Involvement offers a necessary anthropological perspective on program design, implementation, and evaluation for health interventions in resource-scarce settings. Richard A. Nisbett, Vanderbilt School of Medicine
