CAAN has been successful in our research funding application for the Aboriginal HIV & AIDS Community-Based Research Collaborative Centre (AHA Centre). This is a five year grant of $1.5 million! This funding will support community-based research development across the country and emphasizes regional work with national coordination.

The Aboriginal health and the HIV & AIDS communities will be directly engaged in every aspect of the Centre. The AHA Centre’s work will focus on four broad areas related to HIV & AIDS Community-based research:

  • partnership building and maintenance;
  • capacity building;
  • research promotion and support; and
  • knowledge-to-action (KTA).

Research teams will be supported to undertake issue-based, rather than discipline-based, HIV & AIDS research that addresses the complex determinants of the epidemic by addressing pressing concerns and public policy issues relevant to Aboriginal people living with or affected by HIV & AIDS.

Community-based research (CBR) teams can apply for start-up funding and will be supported by Centre staff and team members. Projects must include Indigenous Knowledge frameworks and ways of knowing the world.

Centre Investigators will be encouraged to foster meaningful partnerships, to develop and undertake reciprocal capacity building and knowledge sharing activities as well as initiatives to secure additional funding for research projects.

The National Aboriginal Research Advisory Committee (NARAC)

The Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN) is looking for individuals to sit on our National Aboriginal Research Advisory Committee (NARAC). Since 2006, this committee has guided the research work of the CAAN Research and Policy Unit (RPU), assuring that we undertake and produce HIV & AIDS community-based research that is methodologically-sound, culturally-appropriate, respectful, and relevant.

NARAC advises on the work of the RPU and the Aboriginal HIV & AIDS Community-Based Research Collaborative Centre (AHA Centre). In addition, the NARAC will be responsible for the review of CAAN proposals for ethical considerations of community ownership, community engagement and relevance.

NARAC’s Mandate: To provide leadership, vision and direction in all areas of research within CAAN, drawing from past and continued involvement in the Aboriginal and/or the Community-based Research community.

NARAC strives for representation across Canada that is inclusive of First Nation, Inuit and Métis peoples. Specifically we are seeking the following representation:

  • Aboriginal people living with HIV & AIDS (APHAs)
  • Youth (under 29 year of age)
  • Elder
  • Aboriginal HIV & AIDS community representatives
  • academic representatives

What you will be asked to do as a member of NARAC: Members of the committee are invited to participate on the committee for a term of 2 – 3 years to allow for a staggered renewal process.

Committee members will be asked to draw from their past and continued involvement in the Aboriginal and/or the community-based health research community, to guide CAAN’s research initiatives.  We are looking for members from Aboriginal communities residing anywhere in Canada. The ability to communicate through email and via Skype would be very helpful.

Time commitments: You will be asked to attend one (1) face-to-face meeting per year and up to four (4) teleconferences per year.  Time for review of documents and related materials will also be required. Communication between NARAC and CAAN outside of conference calls and face-to-face meetings is conducted via e-mail.

For more information please contact:

Please fill out the application form with this invitation if you are interested in this opportunity! DEADLINE: Friday January 11, 2013
