Summary of recommendations emerging from the discussion and action proposed; a definition of "health education". Health education is seen as an activity, but would more fruitfully be approached as a process, a continuum. The refore, messages are disseminated but not supported or based on local social norms. Little attention is paid to existing knowledge, societal norms, feedback, or even how the message is received and acted upon. The problem with this approach is (a) it is usually a passive model with people receiving the message but usually lacking the resources to carry it out, and there is little opportunity for feedback.

The previously planned global meeting of PSC Officers had evolved, based on numerous comments from PSC Officers and Programme Officers in the field and headquarters staff, into a workshop on Programme Support Communication and strategies to be used in going to scale with the Child Survival and Development Revolution.

The need for this type of workshop has been made evident from papers and progress reports from headquarters and the field that explain and detail a rapid evolution in programming.
