The Health of a Community is strengthened when those who care come together with a heart and a desire for their communities to be successful. The health of a community requires leadership, initiative and ownership. Students taking this school will recognize where community based health training is needed, and current health facilities need encouragement. Students learn to assess, research, create, implement, and come alongside, working toward achievable goals. The ultimate goal is that communities will gain hope, and that a tangible decrease in death and disease is achievable. A focus is given to poverty, access, and sustainability; as well, students learn about the dangers related to paternalism and dependency, some of the major causes of child death and the community management of childhood disease.
