Older adults are often overlooked for HIV/AIDS as a direct result of misconceptions, stereotypes and most often myths surrounding older adult sexuality. It has been noted in recent years that HIV is on the incline for the 50 and older cohort and despite this trend little attention has been given to this problem. Moreover, the aspect of HIV disclosure can be very difficult and emotionally charged in general, yet for older adults this can potentially be more difficult due to generational differences. Older adults have limited supportive resources available related to HIV education and support groups. The objective of this project is to secure funding for the development of the HIV disclosure assistance program at Bienestar (AIDS community agency). The proposed program intends to provide older adults with a safe and welcoming space to discuss psychosocial issues and HIV. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
