  1. A new EPI strategy to reach high risk urban children in Bangladesh : urban volunteers.

    Article - En anglais

    Many community based outreach programs in low income countries utilize illiterate women to provide health services.

    However, illiteracy may present special problems in immunization or other programs requiring extensive record-keeping and follow-up.

    In a trial involving twenty-nine volunteers from urban slum communities in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a community-based referral and record-keeping system for use by semi-literate and illiterate volunteers in immunization outreach activities was evaluated over a thirteen month period.

    The women were uniformly, regardless of literacy, able to use the system to effectively refer and follow-up clients.
