The purpose of this project was to design an HIV/AIDS primary prevention program for African American females, locate grant funding, and complete the proposal to fund this program for African American females residing in South Los Angeles, California. The National Council of Negro Women in South Los Angeles was chosen to sponsor this program. Following a review of funding available for HIV/AIDS primary prevention projects, the Gilead Foundation was chosen as the funding source for grant submission.
A literature review was conducted to assist the grant writer in assessing and developing the proposed program. The program will be held in churches throughout Los Angeles County. They will be trained as role models and lay health advisors. The proposed prevention program will provide these females with the knowledge and skills necessary to increase their advocating, screening, harm reduction, and community mobilization practices.
