What is Jamii Health?
Introduction and rationale: Jamii Health is a local initiative aiming at bridging the gap between professional health information, policy and public information by translating and providing tailored health education to different groups in the community. The lack of effective and continuous translation of health research findings for policy and practice has triggered the initiative.
Realizing the gap, three health professionals with comprehensive training and experience in both health care and communication, pioneered the initiative.
The aim is to bring together different stakeholders in making sure that appropriate health information reach and benefit the people. The ultimate goal is to impinge healthy living skills and practices for wellness and disease prevention in the Tanzanian and African community at large.
Jamii health will use simplified articles, audio-visual materials, discussion forums, live events and seminars to communicate health knowledge and skills to the people.
