MAC initiates community-based participatory research to answer critical questions that could impact our response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Community-based participatory research is research for, by and with the community that is the subject of the research. It involves a partnership between academic researchers and community practitioners. Research can strengthen MAC's ability to base its programs on methods that have been proven effective. Through this work, MAC hopes to contribute to demystifying scientific research in communities of color, and consequently strengthening the network of people in our community who understand how to use scientific research to improve service delivery.
