Title: HIV/AIDS Education and Outreach Prevention Project
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: Dr. Hilliard Lackey
Target Population:

African American

Health Issues: HIV/AIDS

The goal of the HIV/AIDS Education and Outreach Prevention Project is to increase the proportion of youth who have a basic understanding of HIV/AIDS and behaviors that place them at risk for becoming infected with HIV. Specifically, the project is designed to empower African American youth, ages 13-19, to increase knowledge, reduce high-risk behaviors, and adopt health promoting behaviors. The program is carried out in 16 targeted states: Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin, by graduates of Jackson State University who are members of 41 alumni chapters in these states. The project works with the local chapters to expand their capacity to implement the required curriculum, Be Proud! Be Responsible. The evidence-based curriculum is designed to provide participants with the knowledge, motivation, and skills necessary to change behaviors to reduce their risk of contacting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. It covers such topics as Building Knowledge about HIV and AIDS; Understanding Vulnerability to HIV Infection; Attitudes and Beliefs about HIV, AIDS and Safer Sex; and Building Negotiation and Refusal Skills. Training is offered on a bimonthly basis and is customized by the alumni chapters for their respective participants.
