This SHARE policy brief describes community engagement in research using the definition: "In its simplest terms community engagement seeks to better engage the community to achieve long-term and sustainable outcomes, processes, relationships, discourse, decisionmaking, or implementation." - Penn State

The 4-page brief contains guidelines gleaned from a community dialogue in Malawi to explore issues of trust around community-based research. It highlights "the objectives and structure of the event, common challenges expressed by community members, and offers recommendations for researchers and implementing agencies working directly with communities to strengthen good practice."
