What is CBA?

Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) includes free services provided to CDC grantees. CBA is designed for either Community Based Organizations (CBOs), Health Departments (HDs), Communities or Consumers. These services are intended to strengthen the impact and effectiveness of HIV services, and support HIV practitioners across the nation in aligning their services to reach the dictates of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS).


High-Impact Prevention (HIP)          

HIP is one of the many methods HIV practitioners utilize to meet the goals of NHAS. High-Impact refers to activities that are targeted, cost-effective and scalable to meet the epidemiological demands of the service area. CBA programs like Tabono CBA are in constant conversation with the CDC and federal partners to conceptualize how to translate this theory into practice.
