Innovations in the training of community health personnel that emphasize the importance of the development of health personnel able and willing to serve the community by providing health care, promoting health, preventing disease, and caring for those in need are examined. The need for effective and efficient training programs relevant to present and future community requirements as well as to the characteristics of learners is discussed. Such programs seek to maximize the effectiveness of the teaching/learning process by basing it on community problems, by introducing the concepts of integration and active learning, and by using appropriate technology.
