This brief highlights community-based and culturally responsive strategies that HMRF researchers can use to engage community members as co-creators in the research process. It describes the potential benefits of these strategies and provides advice on adapting these strategies to the HMRF program and evaluation context. When determining which strategies to adopt, researchers should consider available resources and the specific needs of their evaluations. The literature supporting these strategies is described in more detail in a white paper about engaging community members in HMRF research (Whicher et al. 2022).
