Training & Consultation
training-now
Our expert trainers and consultants can help you implement High-Impact HIV Prevention programs, improve your ability to work with people living with HIV/AIDS, and build a stronger workforce. We provide free trainings and consultation (also known as capacity building assistance) to community-based organizations and non-medical providers in California and across the United States.

Our California Statewide Training & Education Program (CSTEP) 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.
