Chapter 7 describes how many African health leaders have been very effective in using the resources of their community in their efforts to improve health. They have improvised and innovated: pressing sometimes very unlikely equipment, facilities, and people into service. It covers accounts from Kenya and Nigeria about how two leaders have developed new approaches to tackling disease through building on the strengths of local communities. It also describes the wider political, economic, and social context and the work of the AU, which is covered in detail in a later chapter.
