Healthy People, Healthy Ecosystems: A Manual on Integrating Health and Family Planning into Conservation Projects

Source
World Wildlife Fund

This manual provides guidance for field-based conservation practitioners in developing countries on integrating health and family planning into community conservation projects. It is designed for those who are starting work in a new area as well as those who might be adding on a health or population component to an existing conservation project. In addition, some sections are likely to be of interest to health partners, development organizations and donors.

Focused on conservation practitioners and their partners working at the community level, this manual draws on the experiences of multiple projects by WWF and other conservation organizations and their health partners to integrate health and family planning into community based projects, and provides an overview of the rationale and evolution of undertaking this integrated work, plus overall guidance on why and how to integrate PHE throughout the full project cycle.
