Topic:
“Can floor moppers become tap turners off? reflection on a new public health paradigm!”

About speaker:

Dr Ravi Narayan explores a journey of nearly five decades which all stated with the stimulus of a refugee camp experience of a medical intern in 1971, followed by a professional journey of academia, research and field practice- in public health and community medicine at St johns- a community oriented medical college in south India till 1983.

In 1984, he along with many colleagues walked out of the confines of a medical college to initiate the CHC and later SOCHARA which very recently has been called a ‘campus without walls’.SOCHARA in today’s terminologies could  be described as an early start up in Community Health which participated in the incubation and evolution of  several innovations including PHM/ JSA/GHW/IPHU/ CHESS/ CFTFK/ AIDAN/DAF-K and so many others.
During this community journey, various milestones have been related to work with the medico friends circle, the community health movement in India; the peoples health movement at global and national level; the National Rural Health Mission; the Public Health Foundation of India;  the Ministry of health and the Planning commission ; the state health policy processes in Karnataka, MP, Jharkhand, Rajasthan ; the Global Forum for Heath Research ; the  Emerging Voices in Health process and so on.

In all these years Dr Ravi has consistently promoted a community health paradigm shift from a bio medically oriented techno – managerial process to a  social/ community oriented  model that  includes- concepts such as  communitization; SEPCE analysis; globalisation of health solidarity from below; social vaccine and so on.
