Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant for an HIV/AIDS education programs for older Asian and Pacific Islander (API) adults. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the need for HIV/AIDS prevention services and to expose barriers to the utilization of such services.

The proposed program will be held at AltaMed in El Monte, California, where there is a large diverse and underserved API population. The objectives include (1) increased knowledge of services, (2) increased knowledge of HIV/AIDS and the need for safe sex, and (3) empowerment to communicate about sexual matters with health care providers. By providing multilingual education programs, it is hope that the spread of HIV/AIDS will diminish among older API adults. The submission of this grant was not a requirement for the thesis project.
