LeaderNet.orgThis field guide has been designed to be used by health program directors and managers of community-based programs who are considering using community mobilization to improve health at the individual, family, and community level. It may also be useful for directors and technicians in governmental and non-governmental organizations working in public health and human development and other groups and organizations committed to community health, such as churches, universities, philanthropists, and donors.
