Bringing the Community Together to Plan for Disease Outbreaks and Other Emergencies
This guide is to help local leaders and community organizers bring together the community to help plan for disease outbreaks and other emergencies. Part One takes organizers through each step, namely: 1. Build support for the process, 2. Invite participants and select tools, 3. Schedule the activities, 4. Hold community activities, 5. Analyze and share findings, and create an action plan, and 6. Track and continue the process. Part Two provides a menu of community participation and questioning tools that one can use to create discussion among residents, leaders, and officials.
