Building Partnerships in People-Centered Health

This project was undertaken in collaboration with four Asian institutions: the Institute of Primary Health Care (Davao City); the Foundation for Media Alternatives (Quezon City); the Bureau of Health Policy and Planning of the Ministry of Public Health (Thailand); and the Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement (Sri Lanka). These groups comprised the Asia Cluster, an informal network of institutions actively engaged in community research and action and seeking to generate knowledge for improved health and model building. To achieve this, the project undertook the following major activities:

  • International Workshop on Partnerships in People Centered Health in the Philippines;
  • Asia Cluster expanded core group meeting in Bangkok;
  • International Conference on Health Research for Development in Bangkok; and
  • People’s Health Assembly in Dhaka, Bangladesh. 

The final consultation workshop was held in the Philippines in February 2001.
