Experiences using photo voice in health systems research: Transforming evidence and methods to share knowledge, engage, empower and act

Photo voice enables participants to document, share and analyse their realities through photographs. In having the power to frame images, marginalized people can represent themselves in transformative ways. We explore experiences of photo voice in participatory health systems research in Uganda, Zambia and regional east and southern Africa, and India, where communities have used photography to express and analyse their realities in health, and to communicate and act on them.

FHS Participants:

  • Asha George, Assistant Professor, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, USA - Moderator
  • Shibaji Bose, Communication Officer, Institute of Health Management Research, India - Discussant
  • David Musoke, Assistant Lecturer, Makerere University School of Public Health, Uganda - Discussant

User-centred evidence: Perspectives from institutions engaged in health systems knowledge translation

Research evidence is important at various stages of policy process including agenda setting, policy making, policy implementation, and policy monitoring and evaluation. The evidence required at these stages, the key institutions that need to be engaged and strategies for engaging them successfully may differ. The session will present the multiple user perspectives of evidence needed at different policy stages and strategies used to adapt evidence by different institutions.
