The training of health promotion officers in Cote d'Ivoire: Socio- Anthropological issues in community interventions

Adou Serge Judicael ANOUA

The epidemiological transition remains a major challenge for public health in Côte d’Ivoire. It stems from the medicalized vision of the health system. In fact, the action plans of the various national programs are in no way officially supported by any sociological support study. The implication of such an attitude is due to sociological resistance in the acculturation process. In view of the importance of the human component, we reduce the complexity of this epidemiological monopoly in the public health approach in Côte d’Ivoire.
