Title: HIV/AIDS Health Promotion and Education Program
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: Lamont Clark
Target Population:

Black/African American

Health Issues: HIV/AIDS


The HIV/AIDS Health Promotion and Education Program seeks to improve the health status, relative to HIV/AIDS, of targeted minority populations by engaging national minority-serving organization in educational and outreach efforts to address the HIV/AIDS crisis. The overall goals of the project are to reduce high risk behaviors in African American youth, ages 17-24, in and around the campuses of selected Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs); provide targeted youth with knowledge of health promoting behaviors; increase their knowledge of methods by which the transmission of HIV/AIDS can be prevented; and increase their knowledge of the impact of HIV/AIDS. The project uses a peer education model and a training institute to implement activities. In the Peer Education Certification Training, campus students and community participants receive on-site training and certification to take the HIV prevention message to their peers and other community members. This activity is designed to increase skill-building, encourage positive decision making, and provide young people with the abilities needed to keep themselves knowledgeable and safe from peer pressure. The HIV/AIDS Training of the Trainer Summer Institute is held in Washington, D.C. for selected students from up to 15 HBCU campuses. Participants receive comprehensive training on the A-B-C Method (Abstinence, Be Faithful, and Condoms), with topics covering ethnic and gender pride, HIV/AIDS education, assertiveness skills training, behavioral self-management training, coping skills and abstinence. After completing the institute, the students return to their respective campuses to train other students and community members as Peer Educators and implement HIV/AIDS Prevention Education programs on campus and in the community.
