Good Participatory Practice (GPP) Guidelines

AVAC is pleased to announce the release of the draft second edition of the Good Participatory Practice (GPP) Guidelines for biomedical HIV prevention trials, which were first published by AVAC and UNAIDS in 2007. This version is open for public comment until October 31, 2010. Comments can be sent to avac@avac.org. The second edition of the GPP Guidelines will be finalized and released later in 2010.

The GPP guidelines were created in 2007 to set global standards for stakeholder engagement in biomedical HIV prevention trials. The GPP guidelines are intended to provide trial funders, sponsors and implementers with systematic guidance on how to effectively engage with all stakeholders in the design and conduct of biomedical HIV prevention trials. Other stakeholders such as community members can also use the GPP guidelines to evaluate engagement efforts by trial funders, sponsors and implementers. The GPP guidelines are the first set of global guidelines that address community engagement in biomedical HIV prevention trials.
