Community-Based Health Organizations presents the basic principles and practical design and management elements that are needed to create an effective community-based health organization. Once in place, these institutions provide a viable health delivery alternative to traditional, mainstream health care organizations.
This important resource includes a historical and theoretical overview of the development of community- based health care organizations and offers guidance for developing the structure and capacity of CBHOs to effectively meet the health needs within their communities.
Filled with illustrative examples and case studies, Community-Based Health Organizations is designed to be a practical resource.
