JSI is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide capacity building assistance (CBA) to community-based organizations (CBOs) across the U.S. to support CDC’s high-impact approach to HIV prevention for populations who need it most. JSI provides timely and relevant CBA services to increase CBO operational and programmatic capacity to carry out activities that align with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and the HIV care continuum. JSI is funded to deliver services to support: 1) Prevention with HIV-Positive Persons, 2) HIV Testing, and 3) Organizational Development and Management.
Since 2009, CBA@JSI has delivered CBA services to CBOs across the country, with a particular emphasis on supporting organizations in the South. We have established an integrated and systematic approach that allows us to respond to the changing CBA needs of the communities we serve. The team has helped CBOs navigate the changing health care environment by providing strategic planning, technical assistance (TA), and training to strengthen grantees’ capacity to plan, implement, and sustain a high-impact approach to HIV prevention and improve organizational sustainability.
The CBA@JSI team involves JSI staff from the Boston, Denver, and Atlanta offices, and is widely recognized for its expertise in monitoring and evaluation and experience helping organizations reach diverse populations most vulnerable to HIV infection. We provide in-person and distance-based CBA services and products including expert consultations; content-specific training, technical support, job aids, webinars, and other tools; and forums that convene staff—virtually and in-person—from a range of CBOs for intensive trainings and workshops.
