This evidence-based curriculum is intended as a tool for community-institutional partnerships that are using or planning to use a CBPR (Community-Based Participatory Research) approach to improving health.

About the Curriculum Authors 

The material and information presented in this curriculum are based on the work of the Community-Institutional Partnerships for Prevention Research Group that emerged from the Examining Community-Institutional Partnerships for Prevention Research Project.

Information is drawn from the experiences and materials of project partners, as well as other print and electronic sources. In some cases, portions of existing materials were adapted or modified to address the goals of the curriculum. When applicable, permission has been granted by the authors or copyright holders.

The Examining Community-Institutional Partnerships for Prevention Research Project ran from October 2002 through December 2005 with funding from the Prevention Research Center Program Office at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through a cooperative agreement with the Association of Schools of Public Health.

The project aimed to identify and synthesize what is known about community-institutional collaborations in prevention research and develop and evaluate strategies to foster community and institutional capacity for participatory research at national and local levels. The project's ultimate goal was to facilitate approaches for effectively translating community interventions in public health and prevention into widespread practice at the community level.
