Title: HIV Prevention and Education Program
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: James Tierney
Target Population:


Health Issues: HIV/AIDS

The goal of the HIV Prevention and Education Program is to improve the health of the Hispanic-American community by conducting education programs in HIV prevention and encouraging family discussions on the subject. It is an educational outreach program by Hispanic physicians and local organizations to Hispanic/Latino families in the New York metropolitan area, designed to increase their knowledge and participation in the prevention of HIV/AIDS. The project works in collaboration with physicians, hospitals, families, and “co-sponsor organizations” such as businesses, schools, parent associations, churches, community centers, and community-based organizations to strengthen the organizational infrastructure for HIV prevention and education in the targeted community. Specific activities include the recruitment of Hispanic physicians to serve as program faculty, and “co-sponsor organizations” to assist in contacting Hispanic/Latino families and hosting HIV Prevention Workshops in their local neighborhoods. Physicians serving as program faculty complete a Train-the Trainer Program which includes such topics as Learning Theory, Behavior Modification, How to Implement Effective Patient Education Programs, Motivational Theory, and Differences between Teaching Children and Adults. The faculty is provided workshop training materials such as curricula, scripts, slides, and pre - post test materials. “Co-sponsor organizations” advertise and promote the workshops; provide meeting space; encourage employees, parishioners, and customers. to participate; provide incentives for family members to attend; train managers, supervisors, and labor leaders to address HIV issues in the workplace; provide ongoing HIV/AIDS education for employees and their families; and provide HIV-related community service.
