Abstract: The workshop shared survey results with local council leaders and key community members, engaging policy stakeholders in a discussion of community-based health and gender sensitive interventions to reduce morbidity and mortality, with specific emphasis on diarrheal diseases and malnutrition. The presentation regarding the Banda community’s environmental health status incorporated photographs taken at various water sources and living areas in Banda. The presentation was hard hitting and elicited numerous emotional reactions from the participants. A field visit to a Focus City Project shows changed attitudes and life styles of residents, where successful initiatives have been implemented.
