This seminar examines the Community Health Club (CHC) Model, a methodology for achieving fully functional communities enabling villagers to manage their own health and development initiatives in a sustainable integrated way. This is achieved by establishing voluntary village structures known as Community Health Clubs (CHCs) as a vehicle for development, enabling villagers to transit through four phases: firstly by using health education & hygiene promotion as an entry point, leading to self-supply of sanitation and safe solid waste disposal, protecting water resources and the environment, and finally to sustainable livelihoods through ‘Food, Agriculture and Nutrition’ (FAN) programme. The side event provides a unique opportunity to understand the social psychology of the CHC Model as well as hearing first hand examples drawn from case studies in Zimbabwe, Rwanda and Uganda, with similar examples of community led approaches in Kenya and Benin. This is an opportunity for discussion and debate as to whether the CHC Model is replicable at scale in other developing countries as we seek practical ways to ‘Fight poverty post 2015 by securing access to energy, food and water’.
