HIV, STI, Viral Hepatitis, and Harm Reduction

Aiming to strengthen the capacity of local health departments to address HIV, STIs, Viral Hepatitis, and Harm Reduction.


NACCHO’s HIV, STI, Viral Hepatitis, and Harm Reduction program aims to strengthen the capacity of local health department HIV, STIs, viral hepatitis, and harm reduction programs by providing technical and capacity building assistance, developing and disseminating tools and resources, and facilitating information exchange, peer engagement, and learning opportunities. Check out some of our most recently developed resources below, and be sure to visit the Essential Elements of Local Public Health blog for the latest, news, tools, and resources from the field!

NACCHO works with local health departments to address these public health challenges collaboratively, as HIV, STIs, viral hepatitis, and overdose (as well as other substance use-related harms) are closely intertwined in the United States.

To learn more about the intersections between HIV, STIs, viral hepatitis, and substance use and how NACCHO and local health departments are working to address this syndemic, visit here.

The HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis Workgroup (HSHW) provides guidance and input on NACCHO’s HIV, STI, and viral hepatitis programmatic, policy, and advocacy efforts. Workgroup members provide a local perspective and voice for NACCHO’s work at the national level to support, advance, and promote the role of local health departments in the prevention, care, and treatment of HIV, STIs, and viral hepatitis. The workgroup provides a forum to discuss emerging and persistent issues in the field; identify and share best practices; review and provide input on new and existing initiatives; and develop and maintain NACCHO policy statements. The HSHW provides a valuable opportunity for peer learning and engagement with other experts in the field.

Workgroup applications for 2021-2023 are now open! Learn more and apply here.

Sign up to receive NACCHO's HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis Digest, a biweekly e-newsletter featuring the latest news, tools, and resources for local public health professionals working on HIV, STI, or viral hepatitis Programs.

Requests for Information: Local Health Department HIV, STI, and Hepatitis Practice

To better facilitate peer learning and engagement, NACCHO is collecting requests for information (RFIs) from local health departments (LHDs) related to local HIV, STI, and hepatitis practice, as well as adolescent sexual health, harm reduction, and substance use.

RFIs are posted on HIV, STI, & Hepatitis Digest.

NACCHO cannot guarantee that you will receive a response to your RFI, but our hope is that we will be able to facilitate a sharing environment and the more folks that are engaged, the more likely this is to be true!

If you would like to submit an RFI, please fill out the form below. Please contact Daisha Washington, Program Analyst, HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis, at [email protected] with any questions.

Please develop a short title for your RFI including key information about the information you are seeking (e.g.,” Examples of Standing Orders for STI Services,” “Strategies for Offering Hepatitis A Vaccination in Correctional Facilities,” or “Dealing with Community Pushback to Sex Ed.”)
Please develop a short description of your request, ranging from 1 sentence to 150 words. This information will be used to inform possible answers to your RFI and for additional dissemination, so please make sure to include any details that will affect the applicability of another health department’s experience or tools to your work.
Please indicate how you would like to receive responses to your RFI. You can select one or both options, based on your preferences. Please note that NACCHO will connect you with anyone who responds to your RFI via email, but your preference for email and/or phone will be communicated to them.

Join the HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis Virtual Community

NACCHO is establishing a virtual community of local health department (LHD) staff who work on HIV, STIs, and/or viral hepatitis to support learning, engagement, and information exchange among LHDs. At this time, the community will be facilitated via NACCHO’s Virtual Communities. To join the community, complete the form below.

Please contact Kat Kelley, Program Analyst, HIV, STI, & Viral Hepatitis, at [email protected] with any questions.
