Technical Assistance Resources
Technical assistance (TA) resources are available to help the HIV prevention workforce to address challenges in planning, integrating, implementing, and sustaining HIV prevention programs and services within their local communities.
A network of regional TA providers offers support to CDC-funded health departments, community-based organizations (CBOs), and their partnering organizations. Informed by these long-term working relationships, TA is tailored to meet the specific capacity building needs and preferences of organizations within each region. Personalized TA can include mentoring, consultation, practical demonstration, skills building, information sharing, resource development and sharing, and opportunities for reciprocal learning among peers (e.g., learning collaboratives).
Using the CBA Tracking System (CTS), CDC directly funded health departments, CBOs, and/or clinics may request technical assistance on planning, integrating, implementing and sustaining HIV prevention programs and services. Organizations not directly funded by CDC should contact their state health department for assistance in submitting a request for regional TA through CTS.
The AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC) Program is the training arm of HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. The AETC Program is a national network of leading HIV experts who provide locally based, tailored education, clinical consultation, and technical assistance to healthcare professionals and healthcare organizations to integrate high-quality, comprehensive care for those living with or affected by HIV.
