Community and stakeholder engagement is considered an ethical imperative for vaccine research, as it can enhance the quality and outcome of research, facilitate social change emanating from individual and community empowerment, and enhance both the science and the sense of joint ownership of a study by both researchers and research stakeholders. To that end, as part of its purview, the Nigerian Canadian Collaboration on AIDS Vaccine (NICCAV) project works to identify how best to mobilise and effectively engage stakeholders in HIV vaccine research. This paper reports on the successes and challenges with implementing the good participatory practice (GPP) guidelines for the community and stakeholder engagement component of the NICCAV project.
