We provide training and tools for HPP faculty to integrate the NHC and expand HIV knowledge content within their programs. Our goal is to support the delivery of evidence-based, high quality HIV knowledge content with tailored training and technical assistance for integration. We aim to increase the HIV workforce and improve the quality of health care for people living with HIV.

Center for Health Policy

  • The Center for Health Policy carefully facilitates high quality innovative research and evaluation programs that will translate into health policy and support effective policy implementation. 
  • Dedicated to ensuring health equity and improved health outcomes, CHP will lead a collaborative group of organizations to integrate the NHC into health professions programs (HPPs) focusing on, but not limited to, programs in the South with a majority of graduates remaining to work in the South which is disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic. This will build the HIV workforce for communities most in need.
