This report examines the feasibility of developing and maintaining a web site devoted to HIV/AIDS community-based research (CBR) in Canada.
Creating supportive structures to develop community-based research has been an ongoing discussion for many years prior to and since consultations leading to the current Canadian Strategy on HIV/AIDS. The idea of a virtual centre to coordinate these efforts has been referenced many times in the intervening years. To move the agenda forward, The Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC) proposed a feasibility study to explore the virtual centre concept. The CBRC is itself a Vancouver-based non-profit agency mandated to support the knowledge development work of other community organizations.
