The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop a program that would help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among older Hispanic women. The proposed intervention program will include safe sex education, HIV/AIDS testing, individual risk counseling, and case management. The more specific objectives of the program will be an increase in awareness of safe sex practices, an increase in seeking testing, a decrease in the rates of engaging in sexually risky behaviors, and a decrease in HIV/AIDS rates among older Hispanic women. The proposed prevention and educational program will mainly benefit older Hispanic women attending local community centers in Pasadena. Securing funds for the development of the intervention program was not a requirement for the completion of the project.
