Community Advisory Boards

Community advisory boards (CAB) are an effective and increasingly widely used structure to create neutral and scientifically framed platforms for all stakeholders involved in medicine research and development to interact on equal footing. Originally used in the HIV field, CABs are now used in haematology, certain cancers and rare diseases. They are run and controlled by the patient community, and focus on adding patient input into the research and policy processes in a structured and unbiased way.
