CAI's Regional Training Center

Funded by NYS DOH AIDS Institute

CAI is a regional training center (RTC) for the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute, reaching annually more than 1,300-1900 participants in the New York City and Mid-Hudson areas. CAI’s RTC offers a comprehensive menu of 40 to 70 training programs, tailored to address needs identified by the AIDS institute, other regional training organizations, HIV service providers and key populations affected by HIV AIDS, STIs and Viral Hepatitis.

With more than two decades of experience, CAI's Regional Training Center is recognized as a credible training resource in the field. We provide staff with opportunities to develop training skills and knowledge in a variety of relevant topics (See below the list of available courses).

These capacity-building opportunities help non clinical providers increase their ability to provide client centered services aimed at: Increasing early detection, assuring linkage and retention in care, improving HIV treatment adherence and achieving viral load suppression.

Special emphasis is placed on building non clinical provider’s knowledge and skills set in how to promote the self-care capacity of people living with HIV, how to effectively work with People living with HIV AIDS and what are the best approaches to reduce stigma and discrimination around HIV, Mental Illness and Substance Abuse.
