Community-Based Participatory Research: Implications for Public Health Funding
Meredith Minkler, Angela Glover Blackwell, Mildred Thompson, and Heather Tamir
Am J Public Health 2003 93: 1210-1213
Community-based participatory research (CBPR) increasingly is being recognized by health scholars and funders as a potent approach to collaboratively studying and acting to address health disparities.
Emphasizing action as a critical part of the research process, CBPR is particularly consistent with the goals of “resultsoriented philanthropy” and of government funders who have become discouraged by the often modest to disappointing results of more traditional research and intervention efforts in many lowincome communities of color.
Supporters of CBPR face challenging issues in the areas of partnership capacity and readiness, time requirements, funding flexibility, and evaluation. The authors suggest strategies for addressing such issues and make a case for increasing support of CBPR as an important tool for action-oriented and community-driven public health research.
