Title of keynote:

The Self Report questionnaire in Ethiopia: a cultural approach

The Self reporting Questionnaire (SRQ) was validated in Ethiopia, in particular in samples of (1) people in the community, (2) attendants of a general somatic outpatient clinic, and (3) attendants of an psychiatric out-patient clinic. This study revealed that questions sometimes evoke other concepts in the respondants as meant in the questionnaire, notwithstanding correct translation. The answers not only reflect the concerning psychiatric symptoms, but also illness behavior and general help-seeking behavior.
