Howard Brown Health Center has a long history of participating in research studies aimed at eliminating health disparities experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Past studies include nationally funded research initiatives studying HIV/AIDS, the Hepatitis B vaccine and HIV prevention. HBHC continues to be involved in a number of clinical research studies and behavioral interventions that address all areas of LGBTQ health. HBHC is committed to the principles of community-based participatory research which recognizes researchers, community-based organizations and community members as equal partners in the research process. The community-based participatory research process ensures that researchers respect the rights of participants, addresses community needs and uses study data in order to address health disparities and improve health outcomes for the LGBTQ community.
