This toolbox was developed for the World Health Organisation COVID-19 Research Roadmap as a joint initiative between the social science and ethics working groups.
Community engagement is widely promoted in health research to strengthen the protection of, respect for, and empowerment of participant communities, and to improve the relevance and quality of research. Community Advisory Boards/Groups (CAB/Gs), or variants, are the most widely documented structures supporting community engagement. Here the WHO Task Force on Good Participatory Practices in Emerging Pathogens (GPP-EP) shares information on establishing and working with different types of advisory groups in the context of COVID-19 clinical studies.
