Shared Action HD created a framework that is fluid and attends better to the HIV Prevention needs of Health Departments. Its current model consists of three main layers: Technology and Information Transfer (ITT), Skills Building, and Individual Capacity Building Assistance (ICBA). Each of them will produce different impact on the consumers. However, it is intended for these components to work together . For example, while an agency may receive assistance in adapting a curriculum for the target population (ICBA), they may also receive a Skills-building training to enhance the implementation of that particular intervention.
Shared Action HD provides capacity building services through 3 delivery methods:
Individual-level CBA Services (ICBA)
ICBA is the more intense and effective service provided by Shared ActionHD. The staff works one-on-one with an agency on needs specifically related to the implementation of their programs and target population. Some of the services include:
Peer-to-peer Technical Assistance
Planning/Implementing HIV Testing
Condom Distribution as a Structural-level Intervention
Skills-building group trainingsare designed to address the most commonly shared technical core competencies needed to implement programs. Some of the trainings that Shared Action HD currently implements are: Formative Research (Community and Program Needs Assessment)
Shared Action presents printed and Web-based materials to make specialized information on HIV prevention more accessible to program staff. These services are guided by a team of behavioral scientists and a community advisory board to best meet the diverse needs of the HIV prevention field.
Webinars Power Point presentations of discussions of specific high-risk communities or special topics related to capacity building to implement HIV prevention. The presentations posted on this site were previously broadcast through teleconferences and Internet presentations.
SAHD Resource Center The Resource Center provides population-specific broadsheets and skills-based technical bulletins to facilitate and sustain capacity building efforts. Please visit our Program Toolkit page to view some of these materials.
