Obstacles to community health promotion.
International Conference on the Social Sciences and Medicine. Peebles GBR, 1996/09/02.
The health transition ushered into the world in this century calls for a reorientation of traditional health services to manage the new causes of morbidity and mortality, renewing interest in disease prevention and health promotion.
Community-based health promotion emphasizes prevention and community participation with people's empowerment to overturn current inequities and increase control over their health.
Encouraged worldwide by the World Health Organization for the last two decades, some community health promotion programs have been implemented and lessons learned.
However, the shift in focus required means nothing less than a paradigm change demanding not only a reorientation of professional training, but also a reorganization of social structures in communities.
This article discusses nine of the interrelated obstacles that must be overcome to further develop community health promotion.
