Engaging stakeholders in research endeavours: process and impact

Stakeholder engagement in research enables consultation between researchers and stakeholders. This increases the relevancy of research endeavours to the needs and concerns of stakeholders, increases transmission of knowledge to relevant populations, and accelerates uptake of results. Though we recognize the importance of stakeholder engagement, implementing such practices can be confusing and difficult, especially in research studies that are highly technical. In this presentation, I will share my experience of engaging migrant people living with HIV in the conduct of a systematic review.
