Training and Capacity Building
The Capacity Building (CB) Team supports and enhances HIV-related efforts by providing capacity building and other support services for Public Health Districts, County Health Departments, contractors, and other HIV-related agencies/organizations.
The CB Team is responsible for conducting and/or coordinating trainings
and workshops. This includes HIV Counseling and Testing training, which
prepares attendees to conduct HIV prevention counseling with individuals,
provide HIV antibody testing services, and make referrals. (Note: This is
mandatory training for Public Health staff responsible for
HIV Counseling and Testing services). HIV
prevention intervention training is usually conducted by national capacity building providers. The CB Team coordinates the training in Georgia.
The CB Team is also responsible for the following:
- Conducting assessments/surveys to determine capacity building needs;
- Routinely disseminating relevant information about training, funding opportunities, etc. to Public Health and other agencies (both funded and non-funded);
- Linking individuals/agencies to needed resources; and
- Providing related technical assistance and materials, such as guidance on policy/legal issues and distribution of HIV brochures mandated by state law.
