Subjects: Community-based participatory research, challenges, sexually transmitted infections,Greenland
Increasingly, community-based participatory research (CBPR), with its emphasis on engagingcommunities as full and equal partners in all phases of the research process is being promotedto address the health needs of peoples living in the North American Arctic. However, the CBPRapproach is not without its challenges in Arctic countries such as Greenland, where researchcapacity, different languages, distance, time and cost become barriers to remaining true to thepurest form of CBPR. In this paper, we describe the practical application of CBPR principles andmethodologies to a sexual health project investigating sexually transmitted infections in Greenland.We present the initial challenges encountered in the early stages of the pilot CBPR sexualhealth study, and solutions to these challenges. We also provide recommendations for expandingthe capacity in Greenland to conduct CBPR projects.(Int J Circumpolar Health 2009; 68(4):405–413)Keywords: Community-based participatory research, challenges, sexually transmitted infections,Greenland
