In order to carry successful activities, the community and students work together. Each party carries out certain tasks in promoting the life of the community. For the community a committee (Village community development) is formed composed of representatives from the different quarters of the community sites.

This committee acts as a liaison between the community and College of Health Sciences. The community development committee is trained in methodology of learning by doing, skills in leadership, self-management and self –financing.

Team work is enhanced so that students could learn much from other members of the team.

Each student is assigned to 2 families, which he or she will follow during his studies. The student has to observe the importance of confidentiality. Within the families, each student follows up children and mothers noting their growth and development and assesses the health status of other members of the family. The student keeps records of the members of the family (income, pulse, BP, heart sounds, weight and height). The student also observes and notes the environment and social characteristic of the family, relationships among members of the family and the effects of the extended family on health and disease.
The students also carry out the following activities:
Students identify the health abnormalities of the community sites and then study them as a problem.
Students are introduced to the methods of assessing health problems in the community (including data collecting, analysis and interpretation) and decide on priorities and intervention on the basis of specific orientation community diagnosis. The students identifying other problems within the community in collaboration with committees from the community, decide on priorities and look solutions for the problems they identify with the community committees.
The students study the role of the community’s socioeconomic and other factors in order to prevent development of diseases.
Students study the relationship between environment and host.
Team work is enhanced so that students could learn much from other members of the team.
The community committee and the students identify together the education and socioeconomic problems facing the community, prioritize the problems, classify according to who will be assigned to solve them, time frame and targets in managing the problems. Those targets must be clear, simple and realistic to motivate the community. College of Health Science students guide the community committee development and the community in the feasibility of solving different problems taking into consideration community needs, extent of the problem among families and impact of people’s quality of life.
Baseline surveys were carried out before the start of the community activities to get database for actions, plans and evaluation of the activities. It highlighted the actual problems and needs of the community and indicated ways to solve it. Baseline survey included:
a.    household surveys were was conducted on house to house basis in order to obtain information about the families (family members, their age, sex, major income resources of the family, number of children, vaccination of the children, prevalence of chronic diseases and disabilities within the family).

Surveys on vital indicators of health status such as crude death rate, infant mortality rate, maternity mortality rate etc
The community was also assessed for its response towards the development activities, its level of participation, acceptance and ownership of the activities and sustainability of the development projects.
While emphasizing the preventive and promotive aspects of health care of the community the essential curative services was carried out also. The overall focus was on communicable diseases, common nutritional disorders and environmental health and hygiene, with a special attention to the conditions constituting the major elements of the burden of disease: reproductive health care, treatment and control of basic infectious diseases (upper respiratory tract infection and tuberculosis), control of epidemic diseases (especially malaria), immunization.
