Morley, David; And Others
This digest on education and primary health care brings together five articles which offer practical guidelines for action at both policymaking and operational levels. The major emphasis is on the child-to-child approach. Articles concern: (1) suggestions for curricular and cocurricular activities for involving school children in community health; (2) teachers and pupils as health workers; (3) health and nutrition in early childhood development; (4) a guide for a publication on using growth charts in relation to variables affecting children's development; and (5) health care development through community-oriented teacher training. Three appendixes are included. Appendix I lists health related supplies, equipment, and drugs. Appendix II offers a curriculum design for training teachers in health care. Appendix III provides a summary description of the courses in three teacher training centers in Sudan, Papua New Guinea, and Cameroon. (RH)
