UCSF provides capacity building assistance to community-based organizations to improve the effectiveness of community-based high-impact HIV prevention activities.

Our team has the experience and expertise to provide capacity building assistance (CBA) services to community-based organizations (CBOs) on high-impact HIV Prevention (HIP) (especially among those serving gay/bisexual/and other men who have sex with men, trans women, communities of color, incarcerated populations, and injection drug users) to improve their capacity to conduct HIV testing, prevention with HIV-positive individuals, and prevention with high-risk HIV-negative individuals. 

UCSF has a long and successful history of delivering CBA to CBOs, going back to the beginning of the epidemic. We provide information dissemination services, training, and technical assistance (TA), including the facilitation of peer-to-peer learning. Our CBA providers are also experienced at helping CBOs use social media in their prevention efforts.
