Title: Hombres Preparados: An HIV/AIDS Training and Education Program for Farmworkers
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: E. Roberta Ryder
Target Population:


Health Issues: HIV/AIDS

The overall goal of the Hombres Preparados: An HIV/AIDS Training and Education Program for Farmworkers project is to develop and implement an HIV/AIDS training program for federally funded migrant health centers in order to expand the capacity of allied health professionals to provide culturally competent HIV/AIDS education and referral services to “solo male” Latino Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers (MSFW). The project is designed to: increase the capacity of allied health processionals to provide culturally appropriate HIV/AIDS education through six regional and local training programs and three national sessions; increase utilization of the grantee’s Resource Center and Library as a primary source for farmworker specific HIV/AIDS resources, curricula, and patient education materials and tools; and increase the number of HIV/AIDS information and referral services provided through its toll free, bilingual, health information and referral “Call for Health Program.” Culturally appropriate HIV/AIDS health education training curriculum and teaching tools for allied health professionals (outreach workers, community health workers, and health promoters) to use with “Solo Male” Latino MSFWs will be developed. Focus groups with allied health professionals and MSFW males will be used to gather feedback on the draft curriculum and teaching tools, with the curriculum will be refined through onsite pilot tests. Once completed, training sessions will be conducted at selected migrant health centers. The national training activities will also be used to create networking and collaboration opportunities, and to identify additional resources, program models, and training strategies for the more efficient provision of health care services to farmworkers. A catalog of HIV/AIDS materials will be distributed to individuals/agencies participating in the training sessions and to federally funded migrant health centers and other organizations serving MSFWs.
