“The engagement with PHCs, community members can participate in health education programs, promote healthy behaviours and raise awareness about the importance of PHCs in addressing healthcare needs, including malaria control, prevention and treatment. Additionally, community support can manifest through volunteering, donating resources, or participating in advocacy efforts to secure increased funding and resources for PHC”.
