The Exploring Community Health portal is an attempt to create a a directory of sources of information, contacts and ideas for students and others new to and curious about the field of community health and the Health For All movement in India.

The directory is divided into two main sections although this does not imply that the suggestions in the first section have to be followed before moving on to the second. The first section, Getting Informed, deals mainly with suggestions on how one can get better informed about community health and the Health For All movement in general and the specific issues involved. The second section, Take Action, deals with suggestions on how one can get actively involved with the movement based on what one has seen and understood.

Remember that this site is built by mass collaboration. If during your exploration of community health you come across information that should be in this portal then find out how you can share it on this website at the Community portal.
