The Center for HIV, Hepatitis and Addiction Training and Technology (CHHATT) is maintained by The Danya Institute, as part of the Central East Addiction Technology Transfer Center (CEATTC). The goal of CHHATT is to provide information on addiction-related HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, and other infectious diseases. Resources include professional development materials and online information. The CHHATT has developed “Outreach Competencies- Minimum Standards for Conducting Street Outreach” (Outreach Competencies).
