International conference on the social sciences and medicine. Peebles (GBR), 1992/09/14.
Qualitative and quantitative research methods for public health were integrated in the past.
Work at the Polela Health Center and the Institute of Family and Community Health (South Africa) in the 1940's epitomized how true integration was possible.
Since the 1950's the growth of disciplines and boundaries between them; the growing emphasis by funding agencies on quantitative research that yields results rapidly at low cost and the dominance of the medical profession in public health together resulted in a separation of approaches.
