Excerpt
This publication attempts to show that supervision is a set of necessary activities for improving both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of health services. Starting from this assumption, it describes the supervision activities that should be undertaken at district level, a level that is often neglected despite its importance. Effective supervision can be achieved by proper planning and the use of suitable instruments, but requires appropriate training by means of short workshops for the various health manpower categories concerned.
