The Community-Based Research (CBR) Capacity-Building Program presented by Positive Living BC is a provincial program bringing together BC AIDS Service Organizations and academic researchers.
The Community-Based Research Facilitator brokers the relationship to ensure community interests are included and protected in projects while ensuring scientific rigour is observed during the research process.
The program is designed to improve the skills of AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) in developing, implementing, and disseminating findings from their own community based research project with the assistance of a “CBR Facilitator”.
Terry Howard, the Director of HIV Community Based Research for British Columbia, works collaboratively with ASOs and academic institutions to identify and coordinate a wide-range of initiatives that incorporate community-based research principles and provide much needed “knowledge to action” that benefits the HIV community.
Community-situated CBR projects offer a great opportunity to provide evidence-based research findings to support your next funding application!
