The Stakeholder Engagement Toolkit for HIV Prevention Trials is a guide to engaging a wide range of key stakeholders — people living with HIV, communities, policymakers, advocates, governments, religious and cultural leaders, funders, international agencies and regulatory bodies — at every stage of a clinical trial from planning to implementation and sharing results.
Based on best practices and the experience of clinical trial experts and community-based advocates, this unique resource helps research teams deepen their relationships with allies, measure stakeholder engagement and address community concerns.
The toolkit includes short case studies from Tanzania, Uganda and the United States and offers concrete tools to guide and chart stakeholder engagement throughout the progress of a trial.
