The ELEVATE program builds the capacity of people with HIV to be meaningfully involved in the planning, delivery, and improvement of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) services by addressing needs in workforce recruitment, development, and advancement for people with HIV who are aging, young black men, cisgender women, transgender/gender non-conforming, Latinx, or in the recovery community.
The ELEVATE program comprises:
- Leadership training
- Coaching for people with HIV
- Web-based resources including virtual training, webinars, slide sets, self-assessment tools, and other web-based products and services
ELEVATE builds on the achievements of HRSA and RWHAP training programs over the last several years and incorporates their features into a comprehensive curriculum. JSI leads the ELEVATE webinar program and brings subject matter expertise in health literacy as the authors of the In It Together curricula and RWHAP Part A Planning Councils/Planning Bodies through our current Planning CHATT cooperative agreement.
ELEVATE is led by NMAC in partnership with JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care, the Latino Commission on AIDS, and ICF.
