Community health aides; Public health; Indian reservations
This study of the training and use of health aides in an Indian reservation community program suggests that the success of such a program depends on certain characteristics of both the community and the program. Comparison of this program with sociological studies of other community health programs which failed suggests that the definition of "community" must be confined to the group beset with pressing health problems that cannot be met without assistance from the larger community. Participation in conducting the program by representatives of the recipient community also appears essential to success.
