AFEW International is organising a community-based research programme. The programme consists of several trainings and a small grants fund for community- based research projects. The programme is meant for communities in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) and is aimed to result in the submission of abstracts for the International AIDS Conference 2018, which will be held in Amsterdam.

With this e-mail we would like to ask you to distribute the application form for the three-day face-to-face training on how to conduct community-based research. Please find herewith the link for the application. If you have more questions about the application, please email us at research@afew.nl

The training will take place in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, on 8, 9 and 10 November 2016. This training is the first step in a community-based research programme.

AFEW is looking for motivated participants from EECA region with a keen interest, some experience, and familiarity with community-based research. We foresee to invite two participants per organisation: one decision maker and one research implementer. The training is free of charge.

Following the training, you will be able to access online training modules to further shape your research skills. On a later level, training participants are expected to fill in an application form for the community-based research fund. This call will be released towards the end of 2016.
