Nominated “Best Community Health Video of 1996” by the American Medical Association, Child-to-Child: At the Roots of Health takes viewers to Mexico where Child-to-Child has developed into a fun-filled process that empowers children to identify the problems affecting their health and well-being. Utilizing Child-to-Child activities, children analyze the root causes of poor health and take collective action to protect the health and well-being of themselves, their families and their communities.

Activities demonstrated in the 17 minute video address dehydration, diarrheal disease, measles, pollution, and disability. An 80 page companion guidebook details Child-to-Child as practiced in Mexico. The guidebook also provides a case study in Chicago demonstrating its versatility with examples dealing with different types of problems, such as drugs, gangs and alcohol abuse.
