This summer, one of our main projects is to work with the 11 villages of Houychiem to resurrect the Community Health Days first launched in 2010.
Intern Lauren Crawshaw is working with the Laos project team to plan and develop these community events for each village. Themes this year will be human-animal health risks, environmental management, rabies prevention and community participation. As part of our efforts to continually improve our work, Lauren will be developing a comprehensive evaluation of the Community Health Days to determine their impacts on participants’ knowledge and health behaviours. More soon after our first Communith Health Day is launched this month!
