Our Servicces


Shared Action created a framework that is fluid and attends better to the HIV Prevention needs of Health Departments. Its current model consists of three main layers: Technology and Information Transfer (ITT), Skills Building, and Individual Capacity Building Assistance (ICBA). Each of them will produce different impact on the consumers. However, it is intended for these components to work together and supplement each other. For example, while an agency may receive assistance in adapting a curriculum for the target population (ICBA), they may also receive a Skills-building training to enhance the implementation of that particular intervention. All of them together will produce a greater impact than each of them individually.

Shared Action provides capacity building services through 3 delivery methods:

Individual-level direct consultation

Individual CBA (ICBA)

State of the Science Technical Assistance

ICBA is the component that proves to be the more intense and effective service provided by Shared Action. Through ICBA, Shared Action staff work one-on-one with an agency on needs specifically related to the implementation of their programs and target population. Some of the services include:

  • Adapting DEBI for Latino Populations and Latino MSM
  • Community and Program Needs Assessments
  • Culturally Responsive and Linguistically Appropriate Strategies
  • Program and Social Marketing
  • HIV Prevention Materials Development
