by Goodro, Justin Tyler, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 68; 13815215
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for Foothill Aids Project (FAP) to obtain funding for an internalized HIV stigma (IHS) reduction program, with the goal being to increase general well-being and adherence to antiretroviral therapy among participants. The target population was PLWH/A in Riverside/ San Bernardino County California. An extensive literature review was conducted to examine the damaging effects of IHS, not only on PLWH/A, but also on the efforts to end the HIV epidemic. The literature review revealed a significant lack of empirical research on IHS reduction interventions. Thus, interventions treating other stigmatized conditions were adapted to formulate the program. Funding sources were identified, as well as objectives, activities, and outcomes in order to increase the success of the program. Lastly, a budget narrative, including a line item budget, was included to justify the amount of funding that was requested. Actual submission of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this thesis project.
