Calls

Bi-Monthly Ryan White Part A Community of Practice (COP) Calls

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the CAEAR Coalition established a strategic partnership in 2021 to foster collaboration among local health department HIV programs and Ryan White Part A jurisdictions. The Ryan White Part A Community of Practice (COP) was established to facilitate the work of the partnership. Bi-monthly calls are held on critical topics and intel from these calls is shared with HRSA-HAB. Learn more about the NACCHO-CAEAR Coalition Strategic Partnership and on how to join the Ryan Part A COP and participate in its work.

Quarterly Policy Calls with ArentFox Schiff

The CAEAR Coalition works with the Government Affairs Team at ArentFox Schiff – Jon Bouker, Partner, and Oliver Spurgeon, Senior Government Relations Director – to provide on-going education to the CAEAR Coalition membership on current HIV-related policies to develop and implement effective real-time advocacy strategies and policy recommendations. Quarterly policy calls are convened to provide updates on recent developments and to facilitate discussion on key issues and strategies for moving forward. Email CAEAR to learn how you can join the next policy call.

Quarterly Ryan White Part A Planning Council Calls

To ensure the voice of the community remains a critical component of the federal response to the HIV epidemic, the CAEAR Coalition hosts quarterly calls with Ryan White Part A planning councils to foster peer support, gather input to share with federal partners, and provide opportunities to discuss advocacy priorities and concerns. Email CAEAR to learn how you can join the next planning council call.

Ryan White Town Halls

CAEAR Coalition hosts Town Halls to bring the community together to discuss the national HIV/AIDS advocacy agenda, address key topics impacting the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, and convene the community and consumers to advance meaningful engagement. These Town Halls are scheduled in conjunction with the National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment to ensure maximum attendance. The NACCHO-CAEAR Coalition Strategic Partnership is planning a Town Hall in August 2024.

Partnership Awards Reception

Prior to the COVID pandemic, the CAEAR Coalition held a Partnership Awards event annually to acknowledge the contributions and support of individuals, organizations, Congressional leaders, and federal partners in the goal to advance the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and end the HIV epidemic. CAEAR hopes to re-establish this event soon. Read the list of CAEAR Coalition Partnership Award recipients.
