Greg Mehlhaff, BA

CAPTC Deputy Director/CBA Program Manager

In his 22 years at the CAPTC, Greg Mehlhaff has worn many hats—most recently as the organization’s Deputy Director. In addition to guiding the trajectory of the CAPTC, he coordinated the HIV PCRS Training Program and served as the HIV/STD Liaison, coordinating HIV/STD integration efforts at the CBO, local, and state government levels.

Greg’s current work primarily focuses on capacity-building efforts related to HIV prevention, treatment, and care. He has led efforts to create an HIV Linkage to Care Course for DIS, RESPECT, and Supporting Self-Disclosure of HIV Status for our domestic funders, as well as MSM Sensitization, Support Group Facilitation, and Contact Tracing for our international efforts.

He has worked extensively in South Africa, Uganda, Nigeria, Thailand, and Taiwan, building capacity for local staff. He considers his international work a privilege and a highlight of his career.

Prior to joining the CAPTC, he worked in the CBO setting in all areas of HIV prevention and care –developing, implementing, evaluating, and directing programs. He started and maintained an underground Syringe Services Program, and he spent many hours providing HIV/STI prevention counseling and screening at a local bathhouse.

In recent years, Greg spearheaded the management of a highly complex learning management system; the LMS has been used as a model for other organizations.

In 2020 he played a key leadership role in developing California state and national COVID-19 Case Investigation and Contact Tracing training and delivery. Greg is highly committed to creating training that reflects the unique needs of each community.
