  1. 1. Presented by: Narendra Singh PG JR 1 Department of Community Medicine
  2. 2. What is a Community ????? “A Community is a set of people living in a particular space or region and usually linked by common interest” We all live in a community.
  3. 3. WHAT IS PARTICIPATION?????? A/C to Oxford dictionary Participation means “to have a share in ” or “ to take part in”.
  5. 5. Participatory development and participation in development Participatory development Participation in development A top down participation in the sense that the management of the project defines where, when and how much the people can participate. Bottom up participation in the sense that the local people have full control over the processes and the project provides for necessary flexibility. It is introduced within the predetermined project framework. Entails genuine efforts to engage in practices which openly and radically encourage people’s participation.
  6. 6. “As an individual I could do nothing. As a group we could find a way to solve each other’s problems”
  7. 7. • Success of any intervention in development and work depends on the confidence built and the power given to people to decide and take community initiatives. CONSENSUS IS ITS KEY • The primary factor for promoting consensus and instilling confidence is PARTICIPATION.
  8. 8. INTRODUCTION • Development intervention approaches in INDIA over the past 60 years have been very much a ‘supply oriented one way traffic’.
  9. 9. LIMITATIONS OF THE APPROACHES A top down approach Target oriented Non involvement of the people Vertically controlled sectoral approach without any horizontal coordination The dominant development thinking oriented towards greater inputs (supply) than what people demanded Near total absence of self confidence and even self respect Lack of appreciation and promotion of indigenous technical knowledge and resources. The ever growing recipient attitude.
  10. 10. COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION • a process by which people are enabled to become actively and genuinely involved in defining the issues of concern to them, in making decisions about factors that affect their lives, in formulating and implementing policies, in planning, developing and delivering services and in taking action to achieve change’
  11. 11. WHO SAYS Community participation is a process by which individuals and families assume responsibility for their own health and welfare and for those of community and develop capacity to contribute to their and the community development.
  12. 12. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND • Establishment of primary health units at the village level to bring the service as close to the people as possible, cooperation of the people in the health programme, and adequate medical care for all individuals, irrespective of their ability to pay for it, were included in BHORE REPORT. • COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME LAUNCHED IN 1952, the setting up of one Primary Health Centre (PHC) per Block was accepted by the Central Council of Health in 1953 .
  13. 13. Contd… THE SHRIVASTAVA COMMITTEE: Employment of paraprofessional or semi-professional workers from the community itself as a link between the Sub-Centers and the community to provide simple services was one proposal. They opted for the Community Health Worker scheme to meet the insufficiency of doctors.
  14. 14. The Primary Health Care Movement towards Health for All by 2000AD Alma Ata, 1977 • Emphasis from “Health care for the people” “Health care by the people” concept of primary health care Democratization of the health services
  15. 15. The International Conference on Primary Health Care calls for urgent action by all governments, all health and development workers, and the world community to protect and promote the health of all the people of the world by the year 2000.
  16. 16. Alma Ata declaration DEFINED PRIMARY HEALTH CARE: “essential health care based on practical, scientifically sound, and socially acceptable methods and technology made universally accessible to individuals and families in the community through their full participation and at a cost that the community and country can afford to maintain at every stage of their development in the spirit of self-reliance and self-determination” (WHO, Alma Ata Declaration VI, 1978, p.1).
  17. 17. STAGES OF PARTICIAPTION Level I. • Community receives benefits from the service but contributes nothing Level II • Some personnel, financial or material contribution from the community ,but not involved in decision making. Level III • Community participates in lower level decision making Level IV • Participation goes beyond lower level decision making to monitoring and policy making Level V • program is entirely run by the community ,except for some external financial and technical assistance.
  18. 18. DEGREES OF COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION Collective action Co-learning Cooperation Consultation Compliance Co-option
  19. 19. • Co-option • Token involvement of local people • Representatives are chosen, but have no real input or power • Compliance • Tasks are assigned, with INCENTIVES • Outsiders decide agenda and direct the process • Consultation • Local opinions are asked • Outsiders analyze and decide on a course of action. • Cooperation • Local people work together with outsiders to determine priorities • Responsibility remains with outsiders for directing the process • Co-learning • Local people and outsiders share their knowledge to create new understanding • Local people and outsiders work together to form action plans with outsiders facilitation
  20. 20. Community Action Cycle Prepare to mobilize Prepare to scale up Explore the common issue & Set priorities Organize the community For action Evaluate together Plan together Act together
  21. 21. Citizen control Delegated power Partnership Placation Consultation Informing Therapy Manipulation Original Arnstein's ladder of participation Degree of citizen power Degree of tokenism Non participation
  22. 22. 1.Manipulation and 2.Therapy 1. Both are non participative. 2. Aim is to cure or educate the patients. 3. The proposed plan is best and the role of participation is to achieve public support by public relations. 3. Informing 1. A most important first step to legitimate participation. 2. Too frequently the emphasis is on one way information. There is no feedback.
  23. 23. 4.Consultation Attitude surveys ,neighborhood meetings and public surveys. Arnstein feels still this as a window dressing trial. 5.Placation Allows the citizens to advise plan but retains the power holders the right to judge the legitimacy or feasibility of the advice. 6.Partnership Power is in fact redistributed between the citizens and the power holders. planning and decision making responsibilities are shared.
  24. 24. 7. Delegated power 1. Citizens holding a clear majority of posts in committees with delegated power to make decisions. 2. Public now has the power to assure accountability of the programmed to them. 8. Citizen control Handles the entire job of planning, policy making and managing the programmed.
  25. 25. How can you build community participation “community mobilization” A process whereby a group of people become aware of a shared concern or common need and decide to take action in order to create shared benefits.
  26. 26. ACTION PLAN • Steps taken to meet the health needs of the community based on the resources available and the wishes of the people (felt need).
  27. 27. PARTICIPATORY RURAL APPRAISAL PRA is “a family of approaches and methods to enable local (rural or urban) people to express, share, enhance, and analyze their knowledge of life and conditions, to plan and to act.”
  28. 28. PRA • Participatory Rural Appraisal is a methodology for interacting with villagers/community, understanding them and learning from them. • It shifts the initiative from outsider to villager. • PRA seeks to empower. It empowers the weak, the powerless and the marginalized, by enabling them to analyze, discuss and deliberate on their condition. • Believes in flexibility in choosing methods. • Reversal of learning.
  29. 29. PRA Techniques / Tools 1. Village mapping 2. Transect walks 3. Mobility mapping 4. Seasonal Diagram 5. Matrix scoring and ranking 6. Trend analysis 7. Venn Diagram 8. Daily activity Chart 9. Force Field Analysis 10.Causal Impact Diagram 11.All undertaken by local people.

  58. 58. QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS OF COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION How much does the community know about the programme? How much do they know about the organization carrying out the programme? How often do they come face to face with the programme Personnel ? What responsibilities do they carry out on behalf of the programme? What kinds of difficulties do they find in undertaking these responsibilities?
  59. 59. Contd..  How satisfied are they with the involvement in the programme and why? Do they have any suggestions to improve their participation in the programme?  Are all sections of the community equally involved in the programme? If there is a differential advantage to some group, why does it happen and who gets the preferential advantage?
  60. 60. OBSTACLES TO COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION Absence of confidence and ability of people in the machinery of health administration. Unequal domination of power relations in favour of rich and to the disadvantage of the poorer sections of the society. Inaccessible services in right quantity and quality Rigid bureaucratic set up impeding the people to participate. Legal hurdles
  61. 61. OBSTACLES TO COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION Participation does not occur automatically. It is a process. It involves time. Hence it may lead to delayed start of a project. 1. Diverse interests and priorities due to social stratification 2. Resistance to decentralization and distribution of benefits 3. Failure to reorient entire health services to primary health care approach 4. Difficulty in mobilizing uninvolved populations 5. Problems of maintaining sustained efforts
  62. 62. PRINCIPLES TO RESOLVE THE OBSTACLES • Channelizing the NGO’s to promote health plans • Effective training of Health personnel in Appropriate technology • Responsive administration • Openness in the sense of having wide contact with the people • A sense of justice, fair play and impartiality in dealing with men and matters. • Sensitivity and responsiveness to the urges, feeling and aspirations of the common man. • Securing the honor and dignity of the human being ,however humble s/he might be. • Easy accessibility. • Honesty and integrity in thought and action.
  63. 63. Contd… Inadequate understanding of local talent, abilities and resources. Absence of identity with the community among people. People’s dependence on GOVERNMENT and not on their self Heterogeneity of interests Resistance to empower people Resistance on the part of certain segment of population to participate Sustained efforts missing
  64. 64. Contd.. • Effective public relations • Spread of awareness about the health activities of the government with the expectations and aspirations of the people. • Speedy redressal of public grievances through a systematic and well thought out mechanism. • Sound health system • Empowerment of the poor • Developing social networks
  65. 65. DISADVANTAGES OF COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION 1. Participation does not occur automatically. It is a process. It involves time. Hence it may lead to delayed start of a project. 2. In a bottom-up participation process, we have to move along the path decided by the local people. This entails an increased requirement of material as well as human resources. 3. Participation leads to decentralization of power. People at the top should be ready and willing to share power with the people. 4. Participation sometimes develop dependency syndrome. 5. Participation can result in shifting of the burden into the poor.
