Community-Based Participatory Public Health Research

Offered by SUNY Cortland

India

Locations:  India (Mangalore)

This program will allow students to learn and apply essential community and public health research skills in an urban international setting. Students will learn the fundamental tenants of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) and then apply those principles to improve the physical and emotional health of orphaned children in Mangalore.

Around the globe, in both the richest and poorest nations, health outcomes and the burden of disease vary widely between individuals. Health disparities- systematic inequalities in rates of preventable disease, injury and death- are caused by unequal access to social, political, economic, and environmental resources. As an example, children who are born today in Japan can expect to live an average of 83 years; children born today in Malawi will live only 47 years on average. India, on the other hand, has the highest rate of child malnutrition in the world, and is also experiencing a pediatric obesity epidemic in its middle-class.

This project will bring students from across the SUNY system to southern India, where they will investigate the root causes of public health disparities. Students will conduct field research to explore the ways in which personal, cultural, economic and political factors shape individual behavior, social policy, and ultimately determine the health of communities. CBPR is the conceptual model upon which this course will be designed. This research paradigm engages community members as partners in investigation, rather than as "research subjects." This framework will allow students to explore and understand the various contexts in which health disparities develop and flourish.

Students will spend their three-week research experience in the city of Mangalore on the southwestern coast of India. Students will stay on the campus of St. Aloysius College (SAC), which is home to almost 14,000 students. Here SUNY students will be introduced to faculty and students from the SAC's social work program, which offers both undergraduate and master’s degrees. SAC's social work program focuses on preparing students to advocate for sustainable social change at the community level. SAC students and faculty will serve as cultural brokers to help the American students to first comprehend and later analyze their experiences.

SAC supports many underserved groups in and around the Mangalore community.  SUNY students will work with these groups to identify, document and disseminate evidence of physical and mental health disparities. In addition to conducting biometric measurements and screenings individuals to assess overall health, the students will conduct interviews and focus groups with key stakeholders in the college and community, to identify priority issues and strategies to address them.
