Abstract: An HIV research project looking at the spread of HIV and risk factors in vulnerable groups involved sex workers and men who have sex with men through two Community Advisory Boards (CABs). Regular meetings, workshops, and focus groups were conducted with CABs and other partners to design and deliver the project. This had an impact on the individuals, community organisations, health professionals, academics, and policy-makers. It also influenced all stages of the research and led to unexpected outcomes. The authors conclude that the involvement ensured the knowledge from the project had been coproduced, and meant the findings were used to influence subsequent service development and health policy.
