Project Details


This project seeks to initially respond to the knowledge gap regarding the evaluation of cultural security by following a procedure that incorporates local visions of indigenous groups.

There is no standard way to implement cultural safety, especially since it is contextual with specific details for each group or community.

This creates difficulties in evaluating its progress and, consequently, its impact on other dimensions such as human health.

The project will document the way in which the concept of interculturality in health has been implemented to account for the specific scope in terms of the encounter between Western and indigenous knowledge in health actions.

The methodological developments and learnings from the work on cultural safety will allow this second stage of the work to be defined.
