The Community Capacity Project: Supporting HIV Self-Testing


Community Education Group (CEG) is excited to help community serving organizations across the U.S. expand their public health outreach/HIV prevention programming by assisting in creating opportunities for HIV self-testing (HIV ST). CEG will help CSOs develop capacity to reach populations in communities that are most affected by HIV with HIV ST opportunities. CEG will do this first by helping applicant organizations determine their needs with respect to identifying and reaching populations at risk of HIV.

Additionally, CEG will offer capacity-building opportunities via webinars, in-person assistance, videoconferencing, video-training, guidance documents, promising practices, and/or subject matter expertise. Our goal is to collaborate with community serving organizations to distribute OraQuick HIV self-tests to persons who need them most, in the most efficient manner possible. And, distribute the units in a way that helps uptake of HIV ST become a core part of an organization’s HIV prevention programming.
