Since 1988, the Bureau of HIV/AIDS Prevention & Control’s Training and Technical Assistance Program (T-TAP) has conducted professional training and capacity building activities for clinical and non-clinical staff at health departments, hospitals, clinics and community-based organizations (CBOs) that provide HIV testing, prevention, and care services. Through education and training of providers, T-TAP strives to decrease the transmission of HIV in New York City and to improve care for those persons living with HIV.
