What are your local strategies?

Local Action Global Health has been in action for a little more than 1 1/2 years now.

A lot of effort has been put toward developing strategies for local action to manage disease dilemmas.

Some of our lessons learned are:

- Science and society are increasingly bedfellows -- We must recognize how these two can fit together to overcome disease-promoting conditions

- Individual action & collective action – We need to reframe key issues as collective challenges requiring shared action by many

- Creativity at the edges – We have to recognize that not all of the answers will come from people in positions of leadership...How can the rest of us work collectively and upstream to provoke change

What are your lessons learned?
What would you add to this list?
