Title: Improving HIV/AIDS Health Promotion & Education for AAPI Populations at Greatest Risk
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: Nina Agbayani
Target Population: Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders
Health Issues: HIV/AIDS


The overall goal of the Improving HIV/AIDS Health Promotion & Education for AAPI

Populations at Greatest Risk project is to coordinate and provide technical assistance and workshops to providers and health care agencies that serve AAPIs in order to enhance their capacity to provide culturally competent and language accessible HIV/AIDS services. Specifically, the project provides technical assistance to increase the capacity of health care providers to improve HIV/AIDS services and care to their AAPI patients and increase awareness of and commitment to addressing HIV/AIDS outreach and education in AAPI communities. It also supports the API Wellness Center’s national media campaign to mobilize AAPI communities and decrease HIV-related stigma to foster AAPI access to competent and appropriate HIV services. Technical assistance and training are offered to educate AAPI-serving providers about the cultural issues inherent to serving AAPI communities; identify and share effective HIV/AIDS programs and strategies that are grounded in multi-level collaborations, and assist in the development of materials and coordinate Community Health Center participation in a national media campaign. The project provides training in areas such as data, needs assessment, cultural issues, language access, material translation, best practices, outreach and enrollment, community leadership and participation, program sustainability, and capacity building. Three selected sites receive intensive technical assistance and resources for providing and evaluating promising interventions; development of an individual follow-up plan; staff to staff support; and access to a technical assistance web page, and a networking and knowledge sharing listserv. The service areas include California, New York, Hawaii, Washington, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Florida, and Wisconsin.
