The Community Advisory Board (CAB)
About the CAB
TWIRI’s work is underpinned by principles of community-based research. The Community Advisory Board (CAB) is made up of individuals who are trans women and/or work to advance equity, health, and social wellbeing for trans women.
Bringing together diverse voices from various backgrounds and areas of knowledge and prioritizing the lived experience of trans women living HIV, the CAB provides essential input and feedback on research and operations at TWIRI. CAB members ensure that each of TWIRI’s studies are appropriate and acceptable to trans women and other community members (living with or without HIV), providing key consultation on design, recruitment, analysis, dissemination, and more. CAB members also provide their regional expertise, to ensure that each study is tailored to diverse local contexts when possible and appropriate.
