San Francisco Community Health Center (SFCHC) has a long history of providing HIV/AIDS-related capacity building assistance (CBA) services in the United States, Pacific Islands, and US territories rooted in almost 3 decades of experience providing HIV prevention programming in our local communities. Our expert trainers and consultants can help you improve and strengthen your workforce to support the clients you serve.  Our CBA services are rooted in two program areas: 

  • California Statewide Training & Education Program (CSTEP) which sets the standard in HIV treatment, public benefits education and health care coverage information for people living with HIV. These trainings support HIV direct service providers in clinical and non-clinical settings.
  • The National Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) program increases the capacity of the HIV Prevention workforce in community-based organizations (CBOs) to optimally plan, implement, and sustain High-impact HIV Prevention (HIP) interventions within the areas of HIV Testing, Prevention with HIV Positive Persons (Prevention with Positives), and Condom Distribution.
  • The CBA Provider Network (CPN) – SFCHC is a CBA partner with the national CPN, funded by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our team covers two TA service areas which include clinical HIV testing and prevention for persons with HIV. As a CPN provider, we have access to a wealth of resources and information to support providers of HIV clinical and nonclinical prevention, care, and treatment. Our role is to provide tailored, technical assistance (TA) with personalized support and to facilitate long- term working relationships, representing the CPN within the Midwest region. Our role is to collaborate with other regional TA providers to develop and implement jurisdictional CBA and plans for CDC-funded health departments and CBOs in each region.

As a federally qualified health center (FQHC) providing clinical services embedded in community, we are well-equipped to offer CBOs a breadth of trainings, technical assistance (TA) and peer-to-peer learning opportunities to strengthen efforts to reduce HIV infections and HIV-related morbidities, mortalities, and health disparities. SFCHC partners with our client organizations to provide tailored CBA services that are community-driven and culturally and regionally specific.
