by Huerta, Miguel Antonio, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 54; 1587906
Abstract (Summary)

HIV is still prevalent in the United States, and small communities are at a higher risk. Small communities, both nationwide and globally, have a greater chance for higher numbers being exposed to HIV. The lack of early HIV interventions in smaller communities does not extend to metropolitan areas in the United States. The purpose of this grant proposal is to fund an outreach program for an HIV intervention and rapid HIV testing mobile sites for all males living in San Gabriel Valley. Rapid HIV testing will encourage adult males to learn their status and educate themselves on safer-sex practices. The grant writer selected Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part C Early Intervention Services as a funding source for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant are not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
