Abstract and Keywords

Multimethod and mixed methods are well suited to prevention research in global health; however, their application has not yet been adequately discussed or demonstrated. This chapter illustrates key opportunities and challenges through focusing on using multimethod and mixed methods for investigating prevention involving migration. It summarizes one large study focused on labor migrants and HIV/AIDS risk and protection to illustrate how innovative strategies combining different forms of knowledge in multimethod and mixed methods can generate more robust and useful findings. Multimethod and mixed methods in prevention research in global health should strategically utilize multiple study elements (investigators, theories, methods, and data) that are most responsive to the central research problems and questions, through existing and new synergies, so as to most appropriately address the key preventive intervention characteristics and contribute to the overall completeness of the knowledge.

Keywords: multimethods, mixed methods, prevention, migrants, HIV, global health
