Abstract: Economic development is the goal of significant national and international efforts; Health is a first critical component in this bigger picture. Why health first? Poor health is both a cause and an effect of extreme poverty; sickness and disease are key factors keeping families, communities, and nations mired in destitution. The foundations of a healthy population must be laid before economies can progress. Even achieving a minimal health standard produces results. Good health increases productivity and prosperity at the household level (UNDP, 2009). According to Kiros (1985), if projects undertaken in any locality aim at improving the development and welfare of the local people, then their involvement at every stage of project is not only vital but imperative for success of that project
