Results : Findings are explored and organized by community concerns and priorities; participant recruitment, training, and camera instruction; identification of photo assignment; photo assignment discussion; data analysis; outcomes; and evaluation of program and policy changes.

Conclusions : Despite the limitations of the studies and/or how they are reported, findings from this review support further application of photovoice to facilitate community change.
