Community Participation

Community participation and engagement are critical in the conduct of scientific research.  There is mutual benefit to communities and researchers when both parties work together throughout the scientific research process.  In the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN), community participation occurs throughout the network, community and site levels through various mechanisms that include representation on the Ethics Working Group, the Science Review Committee and protocol teams.

Clinical Research Site (CRS) Community Activities & Research

Each CRS has dedicated staff to help support community involvement, engagement, and education in HIV prevention research.
