Customizable HIP Training Materials
We are excited to share with you the enclosed presentation on high-impact HIV prevention, with customization instructions. This year, the San Francisco Department of Public Health decided that it was important for us to develop a training for our community-based organizations providing HIV prevention services, in order to orient them to the concept of High-Impact HIV Prevention (HIP) nationally and in San Francisco specifically.
Agencies with direct funding to provide HIV prevention must still operate within our jurisdiction and ideally partner with their local health department to engage in HIV prevention activities. For this to be a successful partnership, we have found it to be very important to work together to align our goals, strategies, and overall vision for HIP. When community organizations and the health department are united and work together cohesively, it is better for everyone, especially those at risk for HIV in the city, county, and state.
On September 17, 2014, we offered a 3-hour, in-person training to providers in community organizations offering HIV prevention services in San Francisco. Key staff from the Department of Public Health, including leaders from the community engagement, surveillance, capacity building and epidemiology branches gave presentations on San Francisco’s strategy for HIP.
In this package we are sharing the PowerPoint presentation used in that September training, along with a document intended to assist you in customizing this presentation to your own jurisdiction, should you like to replicate this training for your own community organizations. We know how important it is for all of us to share ideas and tools so we don’t have to “re-invent the wheel.”
We hope you find this presentation as useful as we did. Best of luck to you and thanks for all you do to prevent HIV in your own jurisdiction. If there is any way we can be of further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact our CBA Program Manager, Gary Najarian: firstname.lastname@example.org; 415.437.6266.
