7th April: Community Action for Health in Porto Alegre, Brazil

In the World Health Day, PHM Brazil launched the book Community Action for Health in Porto Alegre. The book is the result of a participatory research created after the IPHU course held in Porto Alegre in 2008. The objectives of the research were to document episodes of community action for health, analyze the interactions between health workers and communities in these episodes and systematize the lessons learned with these stories. The launching of the book was also a way to be accountable to the people who shared their stories with us. We were very happy to see many of them present, participating one more time in the collective process of sharing these stories and reflecting upon them. We are very thankful to all participants who helped to build this work, turning it into a truly participatory one, and to professor and friend David Legge, who helped us enormously since the beginning. We are also very grateful for the financial help provided by Medico International.

The book is available, uniquely in Portuguese for the moment, through the link: http://www.redeunida.org.br/editora/biblioteca-digital/serie-interlocucoes-praticas-experiencias-e-pesquisas-em-saude/acao-comunitaria-pela-saude-em-porto-alegre-pdf
