HIV/AIDS within the African American population has reached a critical level. It is imperative that the disproportionate HIV/AIDS infections rates among African Americans be acknowledged, addressed and attacked with a collaborative effort by social workers, health care professionals, policy makers and the general population.
There is a need for both culturally sensitive prevention education and increased opportunities for testing within the African American community in order to significantly decrease incidence of new HIV infections.
The goal of this project was to write a grant proposal and locate funding to initiate a HIV prevention and education program targeted to African American women that would offer free testing as well as case management services to those who have recently tested positive for HIV.
The program will be conducted in Los Angeles County and will provide outreach services, education, and testing at monthly community forums, various housing projects, public assistance locations, and churches.
