About this item

Targeting researchers, students, and practitioners, Whiteford and Vindrola-Padros present a brief introduction to Community Participation Involvement (CPI), a community-based model which was successful in helping to control and finally stop the spread of cholera in South America. An approach that has been used for 20 years, they describe the history of its development, the theoretical and ethical issues involved in its application, and demonstrate how community members and public health practitioners use the CPI model. Local community members help to define parameters of research, the terms of engagement, the level of their participatory involvement, and the commitment to sustain the changes generated. Seven chapters are: introduction; global health and behavior change interventions; global health model: community participatory involvement (CPI) approach to social change; the disease: the cholera epidemic in Ecuador; case study: the CPI model in Ecuador—the cholera project; outcomes and discussion; reflections and lessons learned.

The book provides researchers, students, and practitioners with a brief introduction to a health-care model, Community Participatory Involvement (CPI), which for 20 years has proved successful in fighting global health problems. CPI differs from other community-based models in that it involves a unique synergy of local, civil, and political authorities. Using a South American cholera epidemic as an example, the book
-explains in step-by-step detail how the CPI model is used;
-includes teaching activities, a list of important tools, and model workshops;
-demonstrates how the CPI model can be replicated to deal with a diverse range of public concerns, from the control of infectious diseases to animal husbandry to teacher education.
