What Makes the Community in CBT?
This case study draws upon findings from an investigation of the planning, structure and implementation of CBTs in a number of selected areas in Tanzania. In-depth semi structured interviews were conducted in 2012 with two CBT groups (one in the north and one in the central area) and pioneers who initiated the process of establishing a number of CBT initiatives in Tanzania. The research confirmed the lack of clarity over the term ‘community’ in the definition of the Tanzanian CBT model
