Inspiring Communities in Global Health

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventSymposium


Co organised with Dr Joao Nunes (Politics), and funded through a Wellcome Trust Seed Award for the project ‘Community health workers in Brazil and the global movement for universal health coverage’. This interdisciplinary workshop explored the efforts to inspire and mobilize community participation throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and the role played by CHWs as a unique mechanism for the improvement of health systems with the potential for enhancing equity by bringing services to the previously excluded, while also enhancing democracy by mediating marginalised groups’ perspectives through to decision-making processes.
