Title: Examining Community Partnerships for Prevention Research
Status: Completed
Topic: Community
Funding Source: ASPH/CDC
Funding Period: 2002-2003
Study Design: N/A
Purpose: The project’s ultimate goal was to facilitate approaches for effectively translating community interventions in public health and prevention into widespread practice at the community level.
Further Study Details:

The project sought to build the capacity of communities and institutions to engage in participatory approaches to prevention research. “Community” is defined as community members, grassroots organizations and community-based organizations; “institution” is defined as academic institutions, state and local public health agencies and funding agencies. Through community-institutional partnerships for prevention research, new knowledge about the social and ecologic determinants of health was gained, priority health issues from the community’s perspective was increasingly addressed, and the public’s health was improved.

The measurable outcome objectives of this collaborative project were to:

  1. identify and synthesize lessons learned about developing successful community-institutional collaborations in prevention research;
  2. identify the key issues that emerge from what is known concerning factors that can facilitate or impede successful community-institutional relationships and outcomes;
  3. 3. develop a strategic plan to foster community and institutional capacity for participatory approaches to prevention research at national and local levels; and implement and evaluate one or more strategies to foster community and institutional capacity for participatory approaches to prevention research at national and local levels.
