I DISAGREE, since not all stakeholders will approve the existence of an intervention or trial, it is very hard to obtain consensus from all the stakeholders and that is why the engagement process is a continuous process, you have to address past outcry of research which your intervention has nothing to do with but you have to explain if a specific stakeholder is uncomfortable because of that.Cultural beliefs may make some people hesitant to accept an intervention but once they understand what the trial is ll about they would accept it, for example the conspiracy theories on HIV/AIDS will always live with us that HIV was manufacture by whites and they have the drug which they are hiding as much as we have people who believe in it so much others still accept trials to go on as we continue explaining to others who have not understood.
