Participatory approaches in epidemiological research: Theoretical reflections and practical experience

Thursday, 2022/04/21, 16:00 h

Dr. Claudia Santos-Hövener

The concept of participatory epidemiology refers to the active involvement and preferably equal cooperation of researchers, practitioners and community representatives within the some or all steps of the research process. It comprises the following aspects: a joint definition of research objectives and research questions, the cooperative definition of the population groups under study and their health-relevant contexts, the selection or adaptation of appropriate survey instruments and joint forms of interpreting the results. Participatory epidemiology aims at creating knowledge with practical relevance for all stakeholders involved. Using an example, namely the study on sexual health with migrants from sub-Saharan Africa, challenges and potentials of participatory epidemiology are explored and discussed.
