Investigación participativa con pueblos originarios

Hace mucho que insistimos con esta propuesta. Y puede hacerse, si hay voluntad para ello.

A process for the inclusion of Aboriginal People in health research: Lessons from the Determinants of TB Transmission project.

Jody Boffa, Malcolm King, Kathleen McMullin, Richard Long.

Social Science & Medicine 72 (2011) 733-738


It has been 10 years since Smith (1999) wrote that “research is probably one of the dirtiest words in the Indigenous world’s vocabulary” (p.1), and great strides have been made to repair its image.
Aboriginal research organizations have developed at universities in a number of countries, Aboriginal researchers are more often involved in the research, and Indigenous Peoples’ Health has been recognized as a human right through the Health and Human Rights Team of the World Health Organization. In 2006, when the Determinants of TB Transmission (DTT) project began, the Institute of Aboriginal Peoples’ Health (IAPH – one 13 CIHR institutes) had just released its draft Guidelines for Health Research Involving Aboriginal People (CIHR, 2007). These along with other international guidelines, for example those  of  the  National  Health  and  Medical  Research  Council  of Australia (2003) and the Health Research Council of New Zealand
(2010),  reflect the principles of  Ownership,  Control,  Access  and Possession (“OCAP”) described by Schnarch, 2004. In this seminal work, which he describes as a “wake up call for researchers” (p.80), he highlights six common themes put forth in First Nations-driven policy documents to ensure relevance and usefulness to communities:
 Research should provide clear benefit to First Nations Peoples and Communities
 Research should help develop capacity in meaningful ways
 Research should increase First Nations control of information and research processes
 Research should respect sovereignty/jurisdiction/rights of First Nations
 Research should support self-determination
 Research should support cultural preservation and development”

La conclusión es que este tipo de trabajo es más dificultoso pero que puede hacerse.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
