Symposiums

Symposium 1 Community-based Participatory Research from Needs Map to Policy

In this symposium, several research projects from multi-nations will be introduced where community-based participatory principles were implemented. This is an approach to research that involves collective, reflective, and systematic inquiry in which researchers and community stakeholders engage as equal partners in all steps of the research process with the goals of educating, improving practice, or solving health problems recognized in the community. The researchers from four countries will present their research experience of using a community-based participatory approach.
