Epidemiology And Community Health: A Strained Connection?

July 2, 2019

The (dis?)connections between epidemiology as a field of enquiry, and the practice of community health in everyday reality, have interested me throughout my academic life.
How do the findings of research into health, illness and socio-economic context translate into public policy and work on the ground to improve people’s fitness and well-being? Or don’t they? – a question I asked in my previous post: End Female Genital Mutilation Programmes: Research And Evaluation*

I was reminded of this much earlier paper (below; originally published in Social Science and Medicine) just today because I saw it had recently been cited by some others who also ponder these questions. Perhaps we collectively still have work to do?

(*You may also find this much more recent post of interest:
