Atlanta Training Builds Capacity in Health Departments
On May 7-8, 2013, HealthHIV brought together representatives from three, newly funded jurisdictions for a technical assistance (TA) training in Atlanta, GA. The "Share, Structure, Succeed: Newly Funded Jurisdictions Building Capacity to Implement High Impact HIV Prevention" training helped assist health departments to implement and scale-up for PS12-1201: Comprehensive Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Prevention Programs for Health Departments.
Participants from Baltimore, MD; Broward County (Fort Lauderdale, FL); and Fulton County (Atlanta, GA) met for two-days of in-person, peer-to-peer TA programing, facilitated by HealthHIV. The goal of the training was helping newly funded jurisdictions identify successes and challenges with implementation of PS12-1201, discussing infrastructure and policy limitations, sharing strategies to enhance program delivery, identifying TA needs, and developing a TA implementation plan.
Joining HealthHIV at the training were UCHAPS members Peter McLoyd (Chicago, IL), Marlene McNeese-Ward (Houston, TX), and Israel Nieves (San Francisco, CA) who provided peer-to-peer TA. CDC leadership and project officers also participated in the meeting.
