Community coproduction in Sweden - the role of trust for health promotion in segregated neighbourhoods

The project examines conditions and strategies for community coproduction in health promotion work in segregated neighbourhoods.

  • Budget: 2,000,000 SEK
  • Funder: Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare
  • Type of funding: Postdokbidrag

Description

During the pandemic, it became apparent how neighborhoods characterized by low institutional trust have a low tendency to use and be involved in health promotion and preventive services such as vaccination and testing. One way for welfare actors to build relationships with these neighborhoods is to reach out to the community level, and by involving citizens through for instance community coproduction.

This project aims to study how citizen involvement strategies directed towards the local community, as community coproduction, can be designed and used in a Swedish setting. The project uses trust theory to understand the conditions for and potential of community coproduction for health promotion purposes. Methodologically, the project will use survey data and a case study with interviews and document analysis.
