*Each month, the HPTN features a different site, study team, operations, or community engagement staff member. Many of the profiles listed here are those of Community Engagement Program members.
Community engagement investment should not only be nice jargon but actioned for HIV and health research process, displaying reassurance of sustainability and forward-thinking. These steps guarantee a long-lasting impact on communities’ livelihoods and their health when research outcomes are successful.” (Ntando Yola, HPTN CWG Co-Chair)
