NCSD developed this toolkit after many requests from public health department employees and their partners for tips on where to start when thinking about building a coalition.
This toolkit is intended to help STD programs and their partners develop coalitions for the purpose of growing the reach and improving the results of STD and sexual health programs. The toolkit offers concrete steps and materials to help beginners and aficionados alike identify: (1.) the first steps in developing a coalition, (2.) how to support and foster a group of active members, and (3.) when and how to evaluate the coalition.
