CAI served as lead agency in formalizing, enhancing and refining the Southeast Federal Training Centers Collaboration, a joint undertaking of 14 federally-funded training centers throughout the Southeast that builds capacity for training and resource-sharing on topics related to HIV/STD prevention, care and treatment for racial and ethnic minority communities disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS. The partnership includes AIDS Education & Training Centers, STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers, Addiction Technology Transfer Centers, the Viral Hepatitis Education and Training Projects, and Tuberculosis Regional Training and Medical Consultation Centers.
CAI's work as lead agency benefited from an inventory assessing partners' training needs, which informed the development of webinars on the intersection of HIV/STD/TB prevention and substance abuse. More than 560 participants participated in these webinars, one of which was delivered in Spanish. CAI oversaw strategic planning processes for the collaboration as well as its website, and also provided regular updates on partner activities. CAI facilitated development of a two-year work plan in 2010, which resulted in a collaborative focus directed at partner communication and enhanced marketing of trainings and faculty development.
