Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

HIV/AIDS comprehensive program for injection drug users: A grant proposal project
by Morales, Francisco J., M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 74; 1499278
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the project was to design a comprehensive HIV program for active injection drug users, locate grant funding, and complete the proposal to fund this program for Hispanic/Latino males, residing in the Harbor Area, in Los Angeles County. Toberman Neighborhood Center in San Pedro, California was the agency selected to sponsor this program, and after an extensive review of funding available for HIV/AIDS Prevention projects, Office of Aids Programs and Policy was selected as the source for grant submission.

A methodical literature review was conducted to assist the grant writer in assessing program need and developing the proposed program. The aim of the proposed program is to develop a comprehensive HIV prevention program that will empower, encourage and guide injection drug users to understand and identify social and complex risk factors that contribute to the rates of HIV/AIDS among them. The services provided by this comprehensive HIV prevention program will aim to be delivered in a culturally sensitive manner through case management.
