Results of needs assessment to guide the development of training and technical assistance services to help AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) and Community-based Organizations (CBOs) increase their capacity to provide direct HIV care and treatment. Assistance is being provided under the Sustainable Strategies for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Community Organizations project. It will entail revising and/or developing service models and establishing business agreements with core medical and support providers to increase engagement and retention of people living with HIV (PLWH).
One hundred and forty (140) RWHAP-funded ASOs and CBOs completed the assessment, providing information about their financial landscape, staff capacity, infrastructure and systems, and use of data. Respondents also identified the specific topic areas that most interested them for training and technical assistance services.
