Participatory concept mapping to understand perceptions of urban malnutrition.

Publication year: 
1997

This article describes how mapping of local peoples perceptions of child malnutrition was used to improve the quality of focus group discussions. Time was taken at the beginning of the study to understand all the words related to malnutrition and ensure that all members of the group had the same definition, since in the urban setting there was no one single language which all members shared.
