In 2016 CBPR[e]Education is developed by Health[e]Foundation and AFEW International to motivate and train community-based organizations and researchers to use new and relevant interventions to address public health concerns with involvement of the community. Research findings can be used to stimulate social change and improve the wellbeing of the community. Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) has gained popularity as a new approach for researchers who are designing and doing research. CBPR believes in the importance of involving the community, organizational representatives and participant researchers throughout the research process and aims to improve the communities’ health and quality of life.
The e-learning program consists of eight modules on methods, analysis, and ethics. It includes pre-and post-tests, exercises and examples. Community based organizations and aspiring community-based researchers will be equipped with knowledge, tools and resources to design and conduct community based participatory research.
The course is especially designed for community-based organizations and community based researchers. This course was initially developed for participants in Eastern Europa and Central Asia, but is also for aspiring community-based research in other regions.
