Course details / CBPR[e]Education

About this course

Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) has become popular as a new approach for researchers who are designing and doing research in the community. CBPR is based on the concept that it is important to involve the community, organizational representatives and participant researchers throughout the research process; and aims to improve the communities’ health and quality of life. Research findings can be used to stimulate social change and improve the wellbeing of the community. CBPR[e]Education was developed by Health[e]Foundation and AIDS Foundation East-West (AFEW) International to motivate and train community-based organizations and researchers to use new and relevant interventions to address public health concerns with the involvement of the community.
