CPHE Madhya Pradesh Initiative October 15, 2009Posted by Deepak in MP Community Health Fellowship Programme, MP Public Health Resource Centre.
Centre for Public Health and Equity inaugurated its Resource Centre for Public Health in Madhya Pradesh on 29th October 2010. The CPHE Bhopal office is consolidating and building on the experience of supporting public health policy processes and community action for health by SOCHARA in MP. These have included the response to the Bhopal Gas Disaster, the Rajiv Gandhi Health Missions, the Jan Swasthya Rakshak Programme evaluations, support to the Madhya Pradesh Human Development Report and active involvement in the second National Health Assembly of the Jan Swasthya Abhiyan in Bhopal in 2007. It also uses and builds on the approaches of SOCHARA, CHC and CPHE.
Presently the centre is facilitating the Madhya Pradesh Community Health Fellowship Programme (MP-CHFP) and developing a network for community health and public health. The evolving network has started with NGOs and others working with communities and the health system on health and development, with civil society organizations, peoples’ movements and academics.
