We present a reflection about the contributions of the qualitative and participatory approach to the production of knowledge on sexual health of the most vulnerable populations and its translation into good practices. In this reflection we are based on a project of research-intervention on sexual health with sex workers and men who have sex with men. In a qualitative and participatory approach, through interviews, focus groups, workshops and meetings that took place throughout the project and based on the different perspectives of the multiple actors involved, it was possible to define the scope and purpose of the research, to discuss the study design, the most appropriate methodological procedures and results, as well as monitoring the different stages of the project and discuss the next steps. The qualitative and participatory approach in health intervention research shows to be of great relevance in the production of knowledge, in the development of good practices and in community capacity building for health promotion.
