As the title indicates, this manual is concerned with approaches to health and nutrition education and does not cover human settlements issues as such. It is addressed to nutrition and health educators who are interested in trying out new participatory ways of working at the community level. Its purpose is to describe simple techniques by which field staff members can be trained to approach local communities sensitively and to involve them fully in improving health. Despite the focus on health, this manual is an invaluable document for those involved in preparing training-of-trainers programmes where the participants in the workshops are involved in community development programmes and, with imaginative adaptation, it could be applied to human settlements and self-help housing programmes.

The list of activities and exercises will help the trainer introduce techniques which are designed to involve the community in a development project. Very clear and full instructions on how to run the exercises and activities are given together with information on how to make up the didactic materials. A very wide range of didactic materials is used, for instance, puzzles, picture cards, flannelgraphs, sequence posters, slide shows, lollipuppets and open-ended stories. It is so unusual to find a document which gives such practical information on such a wide variety of participatory training techniques that the publication merits attention by all who are involved in planning, setting up and running training courses where community participation is a component.
