The Network-level Community Working Group (CWG) is responsible for ensuring that the principles of community involvement are the foundation of all community engagement activities at each site and facilitating community participation throughout the research process. Ntando Yola leads the group. The Network CWG comprises one community engagement staff member from each HPTN site, one CAB member from each HPTN site, advocates with community expertise in diverse aspects of HIV prevention science, and LOC CEP staff members.

The Network CWG meets at least quarterly via teleconference and at least once annually in person during the HPTN’s Annual Meeting to identify new and emerging issues, solicit feedback on Network leadership structures, monitor progress, and build community capacity. The CWG Chair serves as a voting member on the HPTN EMC, and Network CWG representatives also serve on each of the HPTN SCs, WGs, and the Science Review and Performance Evaluation Oversight Committees (sub-section B), as well as the HANC Community Partners group.
