We organise events like soccer games where community members and community advisory groups are invited and reminded about the research we are conducting. This gives a platform for community members to raise their concerns about the study in the area and help to clear any misunderstandings. We give t-shirts and caps printed with study messages. Participants also have events where they tell research centre staff members about their experiences with the study and we give them presents like umbrellas and water bottles. The events bring us closer to each other and dramatically improve our relationship.
