Teams of trainers in each of five states are leading training sessions for 50 participants. The follow-up evaluation will examine implementation of the training curriculum in each of the states. All participants in the local trainings will be asked to complete a brief survey, which will be conducted online. Two members of each of the state leadership teams will be asked to complete a semi-structured phone interview.
