Partnerships

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 goal of the partnership is to share information, build capacity, provide technical assistance, and advocate for effective programming. Read the press release.

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. In addition, the two organizations seek other opportunities for engagement, including surveys and reports, joint national conference presentations, and special events, to facilitate their shared goal of ending the HIV epidemic.
