Community Based Participatory Research

Community Based Participatory Research is important for injury and violence prevention and control.

It’s a comprehensive approach to include the community within each step in the planning, implementation and evaluation processes.

Community Based Participatory Research:

  • Empowers the community to incorporate behavior changes
  • Allows for the dissemination and adoption of effective interventions
  • Considers a select number of community priority issues for policy adoption and environmental changes for injury prevention and control.
