The community health community of practice (CH-CoP) is now well in place and one can read about its progress and plan in our Year-1 report. Last year, together, we developed a Community Health System framework to situate community health in the overall health system delivery and social landscape. The framework highlighted the importance to pay much more attention on all the actors and processes situated on the left side of the framework. For this year, we invite you to help us to develop a typology of community health interventions. Among others, this typology will help us to put some order within the multitude of projects, approaches, programs with a community health component. This work will help countries to identify different choices possible under community health.

Among other tasks, you will have to:
All the members of the Community Health CoP can apply to this project. Previous experience with conducting evidence synthesis and review will be an asset. We will pay attention to have a working group representative of the diversified composition of the CoP.
