Health Education Course, Chapter 5 - Introduction

Module by: Fred Mednick. E-mail the author

Health for Children

PART I of this course focuses on health for children - in non-formal and formal settings. The sections of this course are organized under the following criteria:

  • Prevention Education
  • Children and Disease
  • First Aid
  • Childhood Psychological and Emotional Health
  • Creating Healthy Schools

Where There Is No Doctor

Part II of this course is made possible by the extraordinary talents and resources of The Hesperian Foundation (1919 Addison Street, Suite 304; Berkeley, California 94704 - U.S.A.). All of the materials come from their book, Where There is no Doctor: A Village Health Care Handbook. The authors are David Werner, with Carol Thuman and Jane Maxwell. The book is published by MacMillan, co. 1980.

The first page of their book outlines the conditions on which it is to be used:

Any parts of this book, including the illustratrations may be copied, reproduced, or adapted to meet local needs, without persmission from the author or publisher, provided the parts reproduced are distributed free or at cost - not for profit. For any reproduction with commercial ends, permission must first be obtained from teh author or the Hesperian Foundation.

Teachers Without Borders expects and requires that all those using this book do so in order that villagers receive the education they need - at no cost. Should Teachers Without Borders learn that these materials are being used in ways not consistent with the Hesperian Foundation or TWB, we reserve the right to bring legal action to bear.

IN SHORT, WE ARE HERE TO HELP. THAT IS THE SPIRIT OF OUR ORGANIZATION.
