Who counts? The value of empowerment approaches in research on maternal and child health in resource poor settings

 This talk examines methods to investigate maternal and child health in resource poor settings. Three applied examples (a confidential enquiry, a verbal autopsy survey, and a community-based review drawn from work in Indonesia, Burkina Faso and South Africa) are presented to illustrate the value of using the research process to shift power towards those most directly affected.

 LD is a social scientist and lecturer in global health at the University of Aberdeen whose current research is concerned with developing health surveillance and participatory methods for health policy and systems research. Lucia’s research is currently supported by a Health Systems Research Initiative Development Grant from the MRC, ESRC, Wellcome Trust and DFID.
