PHP Seminar Series: Community mobilisation to improve women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in India. What works, what doesn’t, what next?

Date: Thursday 28th February

Time: 12.00 – 13.00

Venue: Jenny Roberts, Tavistock Place

Speaker: Audrey Prost

This talk will offer an overview of recent evidence on the effects of community mobilisation to improve women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in India, debate potential mechanisms behind these effects, and highlight gaps for future research. We will conclude by weighing the potential benefits of community mobilisation against the potential harms posed by a ‘tyranny of participation’ in group-based interventions.
