Musoke D., Ekirapa-Kiracho E., Ndejjo R. and George A. (2015) Using photovoice to examine community level barriers affecting maternal health in rural Wakiso district, Uganda, Reproductive Health Matters, 23(45):136-47, doi: 10.1016/j.rhm.2015.06.011

Uganda continues to have poor maternal health indicators including a high maternal mortality ratio. This paper explores community level barriers affecting maternal health in rural Wakiso district, Uganda. Using photovoice, a community-based participatory research approach, over a five-month period, ten young community members aged 18-29 years took photographs and analysed them, developing an understanding of the emerging issues and engaging in community dialogue on them. Photovoice's strength is in generating evidence by community members in ways that articulate their perspectives, support local action and allow direct communication with stakeholders.
