The Project will develop Model Healthy Villages in Northern Lao PDR and improve the health of villagers, in particular mothers and children, through enhanced community participation in primary health care (PHC). The project has 4 major components: (i) strengthening village capacity in planning, implementing, and managing primary health care activities; (ii) improving village infrastructure for 'healthy environments', (iii) strengthening capacity of districts and health centers to support village-level primary health; and (iv) project management and coordination. A key thrust of the project is to test and further develop a coherent model for effective community participation in PHC and to propose a harmonized national approach for scale-up of model healthy villages nationwide.
