Overview

Qualitative research methods (QRM) have been used increasingly in public health researches in recent times. Many scientific enquiries in public health delve into complexities and explore into areas which are difficult to probe, or little-known phenomena, or investigate where and why policy/local knowledge and practice are at odds, and where research cannot be done experimentally for practical or ethical reasons and for which relevant variables are yet to be identified. The strength of QRM lies in bringing out insiders’ meanings, capturing processes and bringing out the contexts in which events happen. These add meaning to data, help in contextualize and enhance transferability of interventions across contexts. Qualitative research (QR) also facilitates making informed decisions at various decision spectrums of a programme.
