Training & Consultation
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 and public benefits education and training for HIV and non-medical providers.
