Frontiers In Public Health

June 2021: SLF is currently leading the assimilation of a collection of papers to be published in the speciality section on Public Health Education and Promotion for the academic journal Frontiers in Public Health. The topic of the collection is Public and Community Engagement in Health Science Research: Openings and Obstacles for Listening and Responding in the Majority World. Contributing authors will tackle the following questions: What are the central aims of listening when we facilitate community and public engagement in health science research? What implications or risks are introduced when we don’t, or are unable to, respond to the opinions, ideas and aspirations of research participants? What are the outcomes and impacts when we do? The collection will assemble the experiences of multiple engagement practitioners and scientists working to integrate community and public engagement (CPE) into clinical and biomedical research in low-and-middle-income countries. Perspectives will be drawn from large clinical trials to small research studies. The findings will contribute to crucial debates on the purpose of community and public engagement, highlighting its transformative potential and underlining its principal contentions. The collection will also illuminate changes that are needed, both in research systems and engagement practice, for meaningful advances to be made in the field of CPE. SLF co-director Dr. Gill Black is delighted to be an associate guest editor of the collection along with Dr. Deborah Nyirenda, Dr. Mary Chambers and Professor Phaik Yeong Cheah. The collection is scheduled to be published in the last quarter of 2021.
