Part 5: IMPORTANT 900-1000 words
Consider the meta-ethnographic review of gender determinants of vaccination status in children whose abstract is reproduced here:
“Using meta-ethnographic methods, we conducted a systematic review of qualitative research to understand gender-related reasons at individual, family, community and health facility levels why millions of children in low-and middle-income countries are still not reached by routine vaccination programmes. […] Key words were built around the themes of immunization, vaccines, health services, health behavior, and developing countries. Only papers, which reported on in-depth qualitative data, were retained. Twenty-five qualitative studies, which investigated barriers to routine immunisation, were included in the review. These studies were conducted between 1982 and 2012; eighteen were published after 2000. The studies represent a wide range of low-to middle income countries including some that have well known coverage challenges. We found that women’s low social status manifests on every level as a barrier to accessing vaccinations: access to education, income, as well as autonomous decision-making about time and resource allocation were evident barriers. Indirectly, women’s lower status made them vulnerable to blame and shame in case of childhood illness, partly reinforcing access problems, but partly increasing women’s motivation to use every means to keep their children healthy. Yet in settings where gender discrimination exists most strongly, increasing availability and information may not be enough to reach the under immunised. Programmes must actively be designed to include mitigation measures to facilitate women’s access to immunisation services if we hope to improve immunisation coverage. Gender inequality needs to be addressed on structural, community and household levels if the number of unvaccinated children is to substantially decrease.”
Considering this review, answer the following questions:
1.If you were working in a rural community health clinic in the United States, what generalizable knowledge might you be able to take from this meta-ethnography? Why?
2.How might participatory action synthesis help mitigate any potential issues with the studies in the review?
3.List at least two areas where you would want to use PAS to make sure that researcher bias didn’t distort the findings. (Discount any logistical problems that might arise with conducting a PAS over such a large geographic scale.)
[Note: you do not need to read the whole study, but if you want to refer to it, it can be found here: Merten, S., Martin Hilber, A., Biaggi, C., Secula, F., Bosch-Capblanch, X., Namgyal, P., & Hombach, J.
