NNEDV The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) is a national membership organization made up of 56 state and territorial domestic violence coalitions.
In 2010 with funding from the MAC AIDS Fund, we developed a DV & HIV/AIDS project - led by our National Advisory Committee on DV & HIV/AIDS - to begin addressing the intersection of domestic violence and HIV/AIDS. In 2011, we developed this training curriculum for our members and their HIV training counterpart to provide training and technical assistance to improve service delivery and enhance collaboration on the ground.
