Capacity Building Assistance

Capacity building assistance (CBA) is a process for equipping the nation’s HIV prevention workforce—including staff at state and local health departments, community-based organizations (CBOs), and healthcare organizations—through training, technical assistance, and other resources to reduce HIV infection and improve health outcomes for people with HIV in the United States. By building individual competencies and technical expertise, strengthening organizational capacities, and enabling supportive structural environments, the provision of CBA is critical to the foundation and performance of the HIV prevention workforce for Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) supports a CBA Provider Network (CPN) to deliver 1) national training; 2) regional technical assistance; 3) continuous quality improvement and sustainability for CBOs; and 4) marketing and administrative support for the CPN. These free (not for fee) CBA services and resources are available for CDC-funded health departments, CBOs, and their local partners seeking to optimally plan, integrate, implement, and sustain comprehensive HIV prevention program and services.
