by Martinez, Wendy, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 67; 1486504
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a prevention program, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant proposal to fund a program that would prevent Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) transmission among female at risk youth. A need for HIV prevention services among female African American youth was identified through an extensive literature review. The program would serve as an extension to pre-existing services offered at an HIV/AIDS clinic in Pasadena, California. The program is aimed to change at risk behavior by incorporating family members that can be positive female role models for female youth. The proposed intervention provides education about women's physical, emotional and sexual health through a culturally, spiritually and linguistically sensitive intervention. The proposed intervention incorporates skills building by teaching participants healthy communication skills that would encourage a more positive and supportive relationship among female family members.
