Black Men’s HIV Leadership Capacity Building Initiative

Black Men’s HIV Leadership Capacity Building Initiative

Welcome to the Black Men’s HIV Leadership Capacity Building Initiative!

We are cultivating a vibrant community of practice dedicated to enhancing leadership skills and fostering the professional growth of Black men within the HIV workforce. Through online and in-person engagements, we aim to empower Black men to drive social change and advance health equity in the HIV service delivery system. Join us in co-creating a supportive and inclusive environment where Black men can thrive as leaders in a holistic approach to men’s sexual health.


The primary audience for the initiative is Black men of the African Diaspora, inclusive of cis, trans, and non-binary experience; working in the HIV workforce, including healthcare providers, public health professionals, social workers, researchers, activists, community organizers, etc. Allies and co-conspirators are welcome to join the online training series.
