Management Sciences for Health


This book contains a series of case studies which depict the management issues a family planning organization faces in designing and implementing a new community-based distribution (CBD) program for contraceptives. The cases, which take place in a fictional country Momonboro, are based on an actual program initiated in an African country, and reflect the problems and successes which that program experienced. The book is divided into seven sections: an overview of CBD, planning, effective management, supervision, compensation and pricing, financial control, and a start-up kit that serves as a guide through the major tasks of planning and implementing a CBD project. The annexes contain useful examples of job descriptions, forms for data collection, curriculum for the trainng program along with other tools. [adapted from introduction]
