Abstract

Despite the significant contributions of the various North-South research partnerships during the past five decades to enhancing research capacity in the South, they have faced a number of challenges associated with the various partnerships. There have been limited attempts to critically examine the successes and challenges associated with these partnerships. Based on the experiences of implementing the 'HIV Prevention for Rural Youth' programme by a Canadian-Nigerian partnership during a four year period, this paper outlines the successes achieved and the challenges faced. The paper reviews the context of contemporary North-South research collaboration which provided the framework for the implementation of the HIV Prevention for Rural Youth. It then examines the benefits which the implementation of the programme have stimulated as well as the various challenges which confronted the partnership and how they were handled. The implications of the project's implementation experiences for future North-South collaborative research programmes are highlighted (Afr J Reprod Health 2012(Special Edition); 16[2]: 127-146).

Résumé

Malgré les contributions importantes des divers partenariats de recherches de Nord-Sud, au cours de cinq dernières années, vers la promotion de la capacité de la recherche au Sud, un certain nombre de difficultés sont liés aux divers partenariats. On a tenté d'une manière limitée, à examiner de façon critique les succès et les défis liés à ces partenariats. En se fondant sur les expériences de la réalisation du programme de la « Prévention du VIH pour la jeunesse Rurale » par un partenariat Canadien-Nigérian au cours de quatre ans, cette étude met en lumière le succès accompli et les défis rencontrés. L'étude passe en revue le contexte de la collaboration de la recherche Nord-Sud contemporaine qui a donné le cadre pour la réalisation de la prévention du VIH pour la jeunesse rurale. Elle étudie les avantages que le programme a stimulé aussi bien que les divers défis auxquels le partenariat a fait face et comment ils ont été résolus. Nous avons souligné les implications des expériences de la réalisation du projet en vue des futurs programmes de recherches collaboratrices Nord –Sud (Afr J Reprod Health 2012 (Special Edition); 16[2]: 127-146).
