The impact of a community based health education program on the incidence of diarrheal disease in southern Thailand.
This study has demonstrated that additional training of service providers [village health volunteers (VHVs), village health communicators (VHCs)] in combination with the mobilization of village leaders and influentials to promote selective preventive health behavior, can have a marked impact upon the effective practive of these behaviors and diarrheal incidence.
Further, this impact can be achieved through the existing staff structure, ie, VHV/VHCs of the national health program.
