The goal of the Community Engagement (CE) component is to develop a program of community–centered collaboration. CE seeks to increase the quality and quantity of research performed in community-based settings by strengthening the capacity of communities and researchers to serve as partners in collaborative research endeavors. CE activities help to reduce cultural and linguistic barriers that may prevent many people from taking part in research. CE also assures that GHUCCTS research reflects the interests and needs of the local community. CE helps to keep communities informed about ongoing research activities and results of completed projects.
