NASTAD and RAISE Webinar Series

Last Updated

Launched in August 2022, the Research Alliance in Implementation Science to End HIV (RAISE) Hub aims to advance the implementation of Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiatives. As the national technical assistance provider for EHE, NASTAD is proud to collaborate with The University of Washington/Fred Hutch Center for AIDS Research on the RAISE Hub.

The Hub promotes evidence-based interventions; supports EHE-funded implementation research projects; connects health departments with researchers to respond to health department needs; and provides technical assistance to EHE Phase 1 Jurisdictions on IS methodologies, frameworks, strategies, and outcomes. As a part of this collaboration, NASTAD and RAISE host monthly webinars on implementation science topics. Learn more about the RAISE Hub here.
