Why Partnerships Are Key
Public-private partnerships are a key part of Act Against AIDS.
CDC partners extend the reach of the overall AAA umbrella and its various campaigns. National organizations, public health organizations, media and other partners help CDC to promote HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention, communication, testing, and mobilization goals and strategies wherever Americans live, work, play, worship, and learn.
Joining Act Against AIDS
CDC regularly coordinates with influential entities across various sectors, including Arts & Entertainment, Business/Labor, Civic/Social, Education, Elected Officials, Faith, Health and Media.
Partnerships allow CDC to extend the reach of HIV prevention messages, while providing partners an opportunity to actualize individual and/or organizational goals related to corporate social responsibility. Partners are selected primarily for their proven ability to reach specific populations at increased risk at the national and/or local level.
What are the benefits of becoming a partner?
CDC provides partners with varying degrees of technical assistance, including the development of HIV/AIDS prevention materials for dissemination at local events, digital resources, capacity building, strategic guidance for national and local activities, and linkages to other national and local partners.
The Act Against AIDS campaign’s partner relationships are managed by the National Partnerships Team (NPT), a multidisciplinary team within the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention’s (DHAP) Prevention Communications Branch (PCB).
