Pursuing a community-centered health project in Negros Oriental.

 Nakao RM

This paper shares major insights from a three-year project involving residents of a rural community in Central Philippines. It is about an unfolding state of passitivity among the residents, from being mere recipients of health services to becoming contributors to the promotion of their personal and community welfare. On the basis of an action-research work, it demonstrates that while attending to the health care needs of the citizens is a responsibility of government, the process still has become deliverate and actively involve individuals, families, aggregates, and communities. This participation, as well as political will, is doubtles a requisite for the development of a health care system which is responsive to the aspiration, needs, culture, and resources of a community and its people.(Author)
