Community-Based Participatory Research

Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is a method that allows for equal collaboration between researchers and the target communities.  CBPR recognizes the unique strengths and assets a community can provide to the research process. The emphasis on collaboration allows for health problems to be addressed more effectively by ensuring that issues that are relevant to the community, including linguistic, cultural, and socio-economic conditions, are considered in every stage of the project.
