The CANOC Community Investigator (CI) Program seeks to engage community members in research initiatives to promote research agendas that reflect community aspirations and visions of change. The CI Program uses a participatory approach to create opportunities for capacity building and reciprocal learning between Community Investigators, Scholars, and other members of the CANOC research team. The knowledge translation and exchange activities pursued make CANOC research findings more readily available to community organizations and individuals living with HIV.
CANOC Community Investigators can be anyone with an interest in the HIV/AIDS field, such as activists, community workers, or individuals living with HIV etc. The hard work and dedication of Community Investigators has greatly contributed to enhancing the quality of CANOC research and improving opportunities for knowledge dissemination.
