This title was first published in 2000:  Although the apartheid regime has now been abolished there is still a great deal of work to be done in order to eliminate the disadvantages it created for the health of black people at both micro and macro levels. This book presents the findings of a study commissioned to assess and respond to the health needs of black people in South Africa. The hope expressed by those who participated is that the study is considered within the wider context of understanding the apartheid system and the scars it left behind. Community Health Needs in South Africa represents an excellent example of how action research can be used as a tool to make a difference in people’s lives.
