"These grant awards will help us continue our efforts to support and nurture the great work of community-based organizations in their day-to-day battle against HIV/AIDS," said Dr. Garth Graham, deputy assistant secretary for minority health. "We must all work together to close the health gap among minority populations, especially those who might not fit into general population treatment categories."
The CHAT Program is intended to ascertain and monitor the effectiveness of collaborative community-based interventions, implemented at the grassroots level, on reducing health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations, and to demonstrate the effectiveness of the collaborative partnership approach in supporting ongoing HIV/AIDS prevention/education and testing initiatives aimed at educational settings; juvenile detention facilities; and alternative living arrangements ordered by the courts.
