Building Healthy Online Communities (BHOC) is a consortium of public health organizations working in partnership with dating apps to improve sexual health outcomes for app users. We consult with apps on how to make it easier for users to share sexual health information and access resources. BHOC has developed resources such tellyourpartner.org, a partner notification site for STIs, tellyourcontacts.org, a contact tracing site for COVID-19, takemehome.org, a public-private home testing model for HIV and STIs, and created an advertising clearinghouse for public health organizations. BHOC was founded in 2014 and moved to Springboard HealthLab in 2021.
The Community Health Leadership Initiative is a project funded by the San Francisco Department of Public Health to improve the workforce pipeline and create a sustainable model for jobs in the HIV/HCV/STI sector. Formative research for CHLI has been conducted by Facente Consulting.
The Network for Long COVID Justice:
The Network for Long COVID Justice links leaders from HIV/AIDS, disability justice, and patient-led Long COVID and Covid-19 advocacy groups to strengthen networks of people with Long COVID and associated conditions, utilizing organizational development, leadership training, cultural work and movement journalism. They seek to center the Black and Brown communities who have borne the brunt of the pandemic, and build campaigns for research, healthcare, and racial, social, economic, and disability justice by and for chronically ill and disabled people, their families and communities.
