Foundations of HIV Cluster Response: Community Partner Education Template

Last Updated

NASTAD intends for health department staff to use this slide deck as a template to present foundational cluster detection and response (CDR) information to community partners and health department staff, either in-person or virtually. Slides, accompanying notes, and slide animations should be adapted based on factors including the audience, details regarding the jurisdiction's CDR work, and state/local policies. We recommend consulting your health department’s legal counsel for expertise and assistance with the section on state HIV criminalization laws.

Note: Specific slides in this deck that were originally populated with state-specific information are watermarked with “EXAMPLE” to emphasize they are templates/sample slides. Other slides (including the example slides) have bolded text in the notes section with suggestions for modifications the presenting health department(s) should make to customize the content based on jurisdiction-specific information.

If you have questions about these slides, please contact Erin Bascom at
