How health departments (HDs)
support the National HIV/AIDS Strategy
State and local health departments are important partners in providing comprehensive high-impact HIV prevention services and accelerating the nation’s progress toward a goal of no new HIV infections. FREE training and technical assistance offered by the CPN can enhance your health department’s ability to ensure that all people living with HIV are aware of their infection, linked to and retained in care, and able to achieve viral suppression. Additionally, the CPN can assist your organization with expanding access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), condoms, and other proven strategies for people at risk of becoming infected with HIV.
The Capacity Building Assistance (CBA)Provider Network (CPN) delivers FREE HIV prevention technical assistance and trainings to health departments to improve outcomes at every stage of the HIV care continuum.
Request CBA to help make the most of your resources and expand your reach. You can request CBA in HIV testing and diagnosis; data to care (D2C) and other innovative approaches to ensure people living with HIV are linked to and retained in medical care to achieve viral suppression; awareness and expansion of PrEP; Community-level prevention activities, including condom distribution and syringe services programs; and interventions to interrupt HIV transmission clusters
You will receive tailored CBA to meet your organization’s unique needs. Contact any of our CBA provider organizations and we can guide you through the process.

We believe in giving back to the HIV prevention community the ideas, innovations, and “best practices” that have been identified through our Capacity Building Assistance work and our collaborations with CBOs, Health Departments, other CBA programs, and the CDC.
