The other face of emergency: Bosnia
Primary health care principles in post-conflict areas
The second video in the series of training films on the primary
health care describes how the ICRC determined in 1998 that
Bosnia and Herzegovina, a country devastated by years of war,
needed special support to ensure the health of its community.
Working with village and neighbourhood groups, it introduced
a participatory approach in which communities are learning
how to devise and implement strategies aimed at preventing
disease and promoting health in a broad sense.
