Request Training and Technical Assistance

What is Training and Technical Assistance (TA)?

Training and technical assistance (TA) are processes used to increase the skills, infrastructure, and resources of U.S. health departments to help them operate optimally to deliver high quality and effective HIV and hepatitis programs by facilitating active communication, consultation, technical assistance, and problem solving across federal, state, and local stakeholders. 

NASTAD leverages a vast network to identify state, local, and global expertise in HIV and hepatitis programs and brings it to bear through widespread dissemination of best practices, peer-based technical assistance efforts, and consultations with federal partners.  

NASTAD's Global Program team also assists partner countries in optimizing the design, use, and management of their own public health systems and facilitating the generation, availability, and use of data for action, helping to “get resources to the right place at the right time.” 

Services do not include the direct delivery of HIV or hepatitis services.
