  1. Evaluation of community health services utilization : a case study from Colombia.

    Article - En anglais

    In a PHC project in Choco, Columbia, Community Health Workers (CHWs) were trained in curative care of some simple diseases.

    Consultations were registered in a village-based monitoring system.

    Of registered cases, about 60% was treated by CHWs and 15% referred by them.

    Episodes were underregistered.

    A cross-sectional survey was carried out in 6 villages, among 890 persons.

    The CHW was consulted in 6.5% of the cases in which a consultation had been made.

    This low percentage of consulting the CHW is explained by the lack of perception of all diagnosed morbidity.

    Reasons for low consultation rates were found in a household survey.
