Abstract

Photovoice is a Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) methodology that uses photography to identify, represent and enhance community concerns. Use of photovoice enables documenting and reflecting community strengths and challenges, promotes dialogue about important community issues through discussion of photographs, and facilitates visual communication of community concerns to policy makers. Photovoice also enhances empowerment of research participants, emphasizes individual and community strengths, facilitates co-learning and community capacity building, as well as supports research translation. In this presentation, the photovoice methodology will be discussed including strengths and limitations. In addition, the experiences of using photovoice among rural communities in Uganda will be presented. This presentation will particularly be instrumental for researchers who wish to learn about the photovoice methodology for potential use in their future research.
