CDC Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) Programs That Work

ETR, in partnership with CDC-DASH, spearheaded the first national “Programs that Work” initiative, which built the capacity of state and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) to disseminate and institutionalize HIV/STD evidence-based interventions (EBIs) and other health education programs. This work included training and technical assistance on EBI selection and implementation, as well as policy and environmental elements necessary for adoption and institutionalization, including gaining stakeholder buy-in and developing infrastructure needed for effective implementation and sustainability. This program reached all 77 funded SEAs and LEAs and provided training to over 250 school districts nationwide.
