CINetwork Usability Studies
Nine Circles Community Health Centre has partnered with the HIV-STBBI MB Collective Impact Network on 2 community usability studies projects that aim to increase access to STBBI prevention and care.
- The “MB Community Event-Based STBBI Toolkit” (currently not accepting further applications of interest): is for community-based organizations, peer groups, and event organizers who are not healthcare professionals but want to increase access to STBBI testing in their communities. If you’re a healthcare provider who wants to partner with the community, this toolkit has lots to offer you as well! This toolkit can be used to plan any sized event, big or small, with its own budget or just the resources you have on hand and in-kind support from partners. To access the toolkit, click here.
- The “First Nation Community Readiness Assessment for Creating Change: HIV Workbook”: The HIV workbook was developed through the Northern HIV Journey Mapping Project over a 3-year period with funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).The goals of the workbook are two-fold:1) To help strengthen the First Nations response to HIV.2) To determine community strengths and areas to build strength as the community prepares to respond to HIV.The workbook is intended to:
- Bring the community together
- Build cooperation
- Build on strengths
- Increase the community’s capacity for prevention and intervention of HIV
