CBPHC is an empowering approach to improving health that engages communities as full partners and extends preventative and curative health services beyond health facilities to communities and households.
“Real social change occurs when relevant knowledge and resources come together with communities in joint action around mutual priorities.”
–Carl Taylor, founding chair of the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins
