Capacity-Building Assistance Evaluation

San Francisco Department of Public Health

The Center for Learning and Innovation (CLI) at the San Francisco Department of Public Health received a five-year grant from CDC to provide capacity-building assistance (CBA) to CDC-funded organizations focused on non-clinical HIV testing and HIV prevention in the Western Region of the United States. CLI was in need of an external evaluator to support continuous quality improvement and assessment of their progress towards program objectives.

In this five-year project, Facente Consulting collaborated with CLI staff and partnering CBA providers to identify evaluation needs, design evaluation instruments (such as interview guides, surveys, and focus group guides), implement evaluation activities, analyze data, and share findings through reports, presentations, and visual summaries.
