Abstract

In order to evaluate community health practitioners, activities through community clients, a household interview survey was done at eight areas in four counties surrounding Daegu city. A total of 1,016 households were interviewed on health service utilization, home visiting activities, work within the health posts, antenatal care and so on. The activities of community health practitioners were mostly curative services either within or out of the health post. Activities of the community health practitioners were related to their past experience as nurses/ midwives/public health nurses and attitudes to health maintenance and promotion. Activities related to preventive services are strong1y recommended.
