Symposium on Evaluating Community Participation and Health Outcomes: Theory and Practice
Geneva, 25 March 2013
ISPM "There is a growing interest in the role of community participation and health. One of the major challenges is to define the way in which participation improves health outcomes in order to replicate successful experiences. The goal of this symposium is to introduce a tool that has been used to examine participation as a process rather than an intervention: "the spidergram". The symposium speakers will present case studies from Mali, Burundi, Sri Lanka and Switzerland. Participants will be introduced to the spidergram and will then be asked in groups to use the spidergram to assess participation in each of the case studies."
