Health and Sanitation Lessons (Africa). Appropriate Technologies for Development. Reprint Series, Number 27.
Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
This book contains 43 health, nutrition, and sanitation lesson plans recently translated for use in The Gambia but originally developed by Niger health Peace Corps volunteers. These lessons can be used in a variety of ways in home visits, pre-/post-natal consultations, well-baby clinics, and primary schools. Unlike most traditional health lesson plans which emphasize the lecture method, these Niger lesson plans stimulate and encourage full client participation. Although designed in 1971 for Sahelian countries, these lessons, adapted and modified as appropriate, can potentially serve as a valuable tool for health programs in Francophone Africa today, and perhaps as a guide for materials development in other countries, as well. Included are sections on: (1) antenatal care; (2) childbirth; and (3) home and maternal and child health clinic visits. Appendices provide sample recipes for weaning foods, a nutrition lexicon, and information about complementary proteins. (JMK)
