|Title:||Qualitative health research. A critical review of recent work in Mexico [Investigación cualitativa en salud. Una revisión crítica de la producción bibliográfica en México]|
|Abstract:||Objective: This paper critically examines recent work on qualitative health research (QHR) in Mexico. Material and Methods: A review was conducted of 128 articles published between 2000 and 2009. A literature search was done drawing together a verse of indexes, search engine, data bases and citations, as well as interviewing researchers. A frequency and content analysis was carried out. Results: QHR has expanded significantly, both nationally and internationally, and papers published in public health and social medicine journals. However, several factors impede its consolidation: the institutional, territorial and thematic concentration of studies, the dependency on grounded theory, the selective nature of the research topics and populations; and its marginal scientific impact. Conclusions: QHR has grown in México, but its consolidation faces serious challenges. Several proposals are discussed that could strengthen the field.|
