Summary: 
Research project describing the issues and difficulties community based organizations in accessing ethical review. Traditional academic and clinical Research Ethics Boards are not sensitive to the needs of community based researchers, are unfamiliar with community based research methodology or the ethical concerns of community based populations of study. Development of autonomous, informed, community based research ethics committees [Research Ethics Boards] is recommended to address these issues and to provide a cooperative forum for consultation with and guidance to community based researchers.

Summary: 
Report of research conducted at the Pacific Resource Centre (PARC) exploring what health promotion might mean in community AIDS work. Health promotion literature was examined for key concepts and interviews of key informants working at PARC were conducted. A model is proposed for refining AIDS work as a faithful response to new perceptions of community needs informed by health promotion research, theory and practice. An outline is presented of a specific, targeted action initiated by the education staff of AIDS Vancouver as a result of the inquiry activities and discussions inspired by this research.
