I strongly feel that development of perspectives and pursuits which are based on community based,community led and community owned approaches can take care of the humongous hurdles the developing countries are facing; especially in the field of health.
The needs based and evidence based planning by the community for interventions which are monitored by the community itself are a definite key to success of such endeavours and are bound to go a long way in improving the scenario of health in these countries.
Health Systems Strengthening must be ensured at all costs(requiring a massive exercise of careful prioritization in the poor countries euphemistically called developing nations)but we must maintain the sustained focus on Community Systems Strengthening(CSS)fully backed by an effective Social Change Communication(SCC).
We all have to see these words beyond their just being mere statements (very often truisms) but as a definite writing on the wall which has to be facilitated by all of us through very active and proactive involvements of the civil society at large, to effect the desired outcome.
Let us all ensure a committed and concerted collective action based on SALT for the same.
