The paper addressed itself to the issue of community participation in intervention programme end that if the beneficiaries are women, then the category of people to be involved in the programme should be women.
In buttressing this, the nursing superintendent of an Expanded Programme on Immunization(EPI) programme in Saradidi, rural Kenya together with 184 mothers attending the clinic were interviewed.
The majority (89%) were of the view that in Maternal and Child health (MCH) programmes, it is only ideal that women should be involved because this tend to blend with their traditional roles of child bearing and nurturing and moreover, in such matters, women would tend to relate better to other women rather than men; women would again tend to show greater willingness and commitment to help other women.
