The other face of emergency: Bosnia and Herzegovina

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.
