In accordance with our mission and vision, SRC strives to conduct research of benefit to the community, in partnership with the community.

SRC recognizes community engagement as an important and integral part of all clinical trials. Community engagement is maintained throughout the study process that is, from the time period before trial inception until the period whereby data becomes available and is disseminated to the lay public. Engaging all relevant stakeholders as active and informed partners in decision-making about the proposed research and its implementation enhances both the scientific validity and ethical integrity of clinical trials.

We have implemented a community engagement plan which comprises ongoing and planned activities which involves different stakeholders in the community. SRC uses the Good Participatory Practice (GPP) guidelines for the Community Liaison Officers (CLO) and recruiting officers to educate and recruit the community. In addition, all relevant staff are GPP trained and assists with information on SRC and studies in the community. The goal of all community activities is to increase general health awareness as well as research literacy. As a result, the community reciprocates its efforts in supporting relevant fields of research.
