About Gunilla Priebe

Three concepts summarize my current research profile: health promotion, health literacy and migration. I lead the new project Health Promotive Interventions for Refugees (HIRE), a project that focuses on health promotion for asylum seekers and immigrants in Sweden. In addition to evaluating interventions, the project includes method development as existing instruments are validated in relation to study populations with different first languages and experiences in life, e.g. varying migration experiences. We also develop a model for how former asylum seekers can be trained in research ethics in order to participate in recruitment to the study and in supporting illiterate respondents when answering questionnaires. In addition, I am involved in two sub-projects within The New Ways research programme. One focuses on the cooperation between physicians and other actors involved in the sickness absence process, the other on developing a web-based tool for prevention of long term sickness absence.

Previous research areas have also touched on theories and methods regarding participatory research and development processes, e.g. theory development regarding concepts of scientific quality, especially in relation to how public health and medical research through community based participation can function as a progressive force on the road towards a more democratic, inclusive and equitable society. In my doctoral thesis I specifically investigated this topic in relation to international malaria research and the results indicated that academic criteria (internal validity) for quality supersede factual generalizability and practical relevance (external validity). Positivist epistemological dogmas of universalism and mechanistic objectivity govern scientific knowledge production in spite of recurrent calls for the appreciation of local needs, variations and specificities. As a result international malaria research has prioritized topics of academic interest, over topics of interest to decision and policy makers, medical staff and the population in malaria endemic areas. In the thesis it is emphasized that reserachers, funding agencies and science policy actors need to reflect over what this means - both for communities in need of high quality and innovative health interventions as well as for the legitimacy of science.
