IGHD invite you to the final of the Grand Challenges Seminar series 2016-17.
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.
