    Abstract

    To empower the Gram Panchayat members on issues related to population and health, a pilot training project was carried out by ISEC in 1998 in one district of Karnataka state using locally available resource persons, and with the help of modules and video documentary. The training methodology developed in this project is found to be appropriate, participatory and less time-consuming. A post-training evaluation revealed that the training contributed significantly not only towards enhancing the level of awareness and self-confidence of local leaders, but also towards improving their performance with regard to the provision of basic health facilities.
