HIV cure research is rapidly evolving along with community perceptions and involvement in HIV cure research. Our team is interested in expanding and measuring community engagement in HIV cure research.  But what is community engagement? How can one put a ruler up against the attitudes, expectations, and the many stakeholders involved in moving forward HIV cure research? Although the overall task is daunting, we have made some small steps in this direction. Our blog is one step in this direction. We hope our answers to these frequently asked questions will serve as a foundation for slowly building up a better understanding of both measuring and improving community engagement in HIV cure research.
