As a U.S. Government, science-based public health and disease prevention agency, the Division of Global HIV & TB (DGHT), within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Centers for Global Health, plays an essential role in implementing the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a multi-agency initiative of U.S. Government agencies and non-governmental partners, working with international host governments to respond, control and prevent the spread of HIV infections.

In supporting DGHT’s legislative program mandates and operating in resource challenged environments across 45 field office locations with a large number of global staff (500 headquartered in Atlanta and more than 1,500 in field offices), streamlining internal communications is vital to the strategic flow of information.

You will learn how “existing” DGHT secured content management system was revamped to foster more dynamic enterprise-wide cross communications and collaborations that acted as a catalyst to enhance processes and program activities. Discover how to streamline your internal communications strategy to foster collaboration and engagement across your workforce, including:


  • Re-energizing your communication platform into a vibrant one-stop-shop informational hub (e.g. secured access for all staff) with engaging features to foster more purposeful partnerships.   
  • Navigating the winds of change by transforming office culture within a myriad of regulatory requirements using limited resources to leverage emerging technology.
  • Encouraging user adoption by decluttering content with meaningful-targeted messaging.
  • Fostering collaborative spirit by staff participation and shared responsibilities, staying connected via newsletters, training blogs and videos, help desk portal, and continuous feedback loop.
