Join the hundreds of global learners – from more than 20 countries since 2014 – who have benefitted from the Good Participatory Practices (GPP) Course, a unique online learning opportunity about the criticality of stakeholder engagement as part of the research process.

The 10-week online course—running from October 17 – December 16—provides research implementers and advocates with a foundational knowledge of the Good Participatory Practice (GPP) Guidelines. The course draws from lessons learned from various infectious disease areas, the rollout of new interventions, and COVID-19 research to date. Insights from these efforts will be used to foster participants’ capacity to develop quick and responsive stakeholder engagement in research and beyond. Participants who complete the course will finish with a customized stakeholder engagement plan that reflects the landscape of their local environment.

About the GPP Online Course:

More than 10 years ago, UNAIDS and AVAC published the Good Participatory Practice Guidelines for Biomedical HIV Prevention Trials (GPP). Created to provide a consistent global standard for stakeholder engagement across the research life-cycle, GPP has emerged as a point of reference for how to engage stakeholders. It has also given rise to a robust community of practice.
