A Community Advisory Board (CAB) is a volunteer community association that helps study researchers and staff better learn how to serve the communities to whom such research pertains.
THE MISSION OF THE ANCHOR STUDY CAB IS TO:
- Provide community feedback on ethical, practical, and other concerns regarding the conduct and implementation of the study, including feedback on ANCHOR study recruitment and advertising materials;
- Identify obstacles to the recruitment and retention of participants and convey this to the ANCHOR protocol team and site staff;
- Raise awareness about the ANCHOR study and its rationale to people living with HIV and affected communities.
