Stakeholder Engagement Toolkit for HIV Prevention Trials

2012 — 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.

2014 TOOLKIT QUICK GUIDE

The Toolkit Quick Guide helps navigate the Stakeholder Engagement Toolkit for HIV Prevention Trials. The guide was Toolkit Quick Guidebased on feedback from community liaison officers, community educators and others working in community outreach in research settings. It gives users quick and easy access to modifiable (Microsoft Word or Excel) tools and instructions for using them. This resource also includes expanded instructions for three key stakeholder engagement tasks: developing measures to track stakeholder engagement program progress, developing and maintaining a stakeholder databank, and assessing knowledge and skills to determine how to build capabilities. 

The Toolkit Quick Guide works best if you first save a copy to your computer.

Limited print copies of the Stakeholder Engagement Toolkit for HIV Prevention Trials are available by request and include a CD with the quick guide and additional stakeholder engagement resources, such as the Communications Handbook for Clinical Trials and Partnering for Care in HIV Prevention Trials: A How-To Manual.
