Recommendations for Research Dissemination
Prepared by the CAPS Community Advisory Board
Why Dissemination Recommendations?
HIV research, no matter how innovative, will never make a difference in the epidemic unless it is disseminated in an appropriate and timely manner to the people and organizations providing HIV services. Yet many researchers are not trained, rewarded or supported to disseminate research findings beyond academic journals.The CAPS Community Advisory Board (CAB) has encouraged and guided CAPS researchers in expanding their dissemination efforts to better reach CBOs, policymakers and community stakeholders. The CAPS CAB drew from their own experiences and interviewed researchers and CBOs to develop “Recommendations for Research Dissemination.”
