National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD)
NCSD represents the 65 directors of public health STD prevention programs in U.S. states, large cities/counties, and territories. NCSD provides valuable leadership for strengthening STD prevention programs by advocating for effective policies, strategies, and sufficient resources and by increasing awareness of the medical and social impacts of these programs.
NCSD's Program in Action
NCSD is funded to provide Capacity-Building Assistance for Preventing HIV Infections: State and Local Health Agencies.
- Working with the National Stakeholders Collaborative (NSC) to strengthen collaboration between state health and education agencies to support and improve prevention of HIV, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and unintended pregnancy for youth. The NSC is comprised of NCSD, the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP), the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD), and the The Society of State Leaders of Health and Physical Education. During Year 5, the NSC is:
- Providing follow-up technical assistance to the states who participated in the National Stakeholder Meeting (NSM) 2.0 in the form of conference calls, one content specific webinar series, and the opportunity to apply for intensive technical assistance support.
- Reviewing evaluation data from the cooperative agreement to identify the impact of the Collaborative activities and determine strategic direction for the partnership.
- Conducting a comprehensive year-end evaluation with the state teams to determine and document outcomes of the process.
- Developing and launching a web-based resource to enhance access to relevant resources from the internal State Team Clearinghouse and enable networking among users.
- Disseminating two documents to communicate the lessons learned and success stories from the NSC and NSM process to public health and education professionals.
- Collaborating with the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) to conduct a second training, offer a mini grant, and provide follow-up technical assistance to the first cohort of Project CO-ACT (COllaboration in ACTion: Reducing HIV/STDs and High Risk Behaviors in Our Communities) agencies.
- Identifying and providing capacity building assistance to a second Project CO-ACT cohort to facilitate the development and implementation of collaborative action plans between involved state and local health and education agencies.
