High-Impact HIV Prevention
Share this page:
This proposed program will offer an integrated, holistic package of high-impact HIV prevention services to the proposed target population: Black/African American heterosexual women, ages 13 to 65 years old, who are at greatest risk of acquiring and transmitting HIV and residing within the high-incidence neighborhoods in Manhattan, NY – Central Harlem, Washington Heights and surrounding neighborhoods.
A secondary target population is Black/African American men and/or male partners of participating women. Both target populations are subsets of one of the three population group, identified as priority populations by the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHS):
- Men who have sex with men
- Black/African American
Harlem Hospital and Renaissance Healthcare Health Care Network are confident its proposed program will assist the federal government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with achieving the goals and milestones of the National AID Strategy (NHS) and CDC’s High-Impact Prevention (HIP) approach.
The proposed program, Peer Advocates and Trainers in Health (PATH), is in alignment with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and CDC DHAP Strategic Plan to:
- Reduce the number of people who become infected with HIV
- Increase access to care and optimize health outcomes for people living with HIV
- Reduce HIV-related disparities.
