Regional Community-Based AHI Management Practitioners’ Workshop
10th-13th March 2008
Amari Boulevard Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand
 

The Regional Community-Based AHI Management Practitioners' Workshop 

The project on ‘Strengthening Community Based Management of AHI in Asia’ has involved a mapping of activities in managing AHI at the community level in Asia. Some of the projects and activities thereby identified have been selected for presentation as case studies at the Regional Community-Based AHI Management Practitioners' Workshop, to be held 10th (afternoon) to13th March in Bangkok.  

The case studies presented at the Workshop will consist of examples of activities in community-based management of AHI in Asia from which lessons can be drawn in order to benefit other community-level practitioners in the region. The case studies will also be used as a basis to highlight underlying themes such as community engagement and community participatory processes.  

Discussions in the Workshop will focus on drawing lessons from case studies on specific themes (e.g. community-based surveillance and response, IEC, animal/human health worker training, bio-safety, exercise management) as well as identifying generic principles and processes that apply to community-based management of AHI more generally (e.g. participatory processes, community empowerment, effective implementation processes, etc.) The case studies and the lessons identified will then be collated to become part of a toolkit for community-based management of AHI in Asia.
