Dear friends, colleagues and partners,

Hereby we would love to present you the community engagement lessons learned: a community perspective within STREAM clinical trial.

STREAM is the first large-scale, multi-country clinical trial to investigate shortened regimens for multidrug- resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), and the first phase III trial to test the efficacy and safety of bedaquiline, a new drug with a novel mechanism of action, within a shortened treatment regimen. The trial established a Community Engagement (CE) Plan. The CE program was implemented at thirteen research sites within the STREAM trial, in seven countries. This document sets out a summary of the experiences of CABs in connection with the STREAM clinical     trial. It underlines relevant aspects that may be useful when planning and/or engaging communities in research. In conclusion, the experiences gained during STREAM, lead to both growing confidence in CE as a valuable process and   community participation in advocacy.

The document analyses qualitative data gathered from a consultation organized in collaboration with all the 13 STREAM CABs in the seven countries, which answered dedicated questions developed for this purpose on the Survey Monkey platform as well as quarterly CABs reports, trainings and All-STREAM CABs ‘webinars notes.

We would like to thank all key partners, international and national experts, civil society organizations and community representatives in all 13 STREAM CABs who contributed to the development of this document.

This document is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the TREAT TB Cooperative Agreement No. GHN-A-00-08-00004.
