Title: Get the 411
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: A. Toni Young
Target Population:

Black/African American

Health Issues: HIV/AIDS

The goal of the Get the 411 program is to improve the health status of African Americans through increased knowledge of HIV transmission, HIV vaccines, clinical trials, and treatment access. Community Education Group (CEG) collaborates with African American community representatives and HIV/AIDS experts to design local community forums to accomplish its goal. Four community-based partners: Ophelia Egypt Clinic, Washington, D.C.; CAP-PEP (California Prevention and Education Project), Oakland, California; Aniz, Inc., Atlanta, Georgia, and Positive Efforts, Houston, Texas, assist CEG in the design and conduct of the community forums in their respective geographic areas. Two forums per year are held in each of the four cities and are guided by an eight-person Advisory Committee comprised of CEG staff and representatives of the community-based partners. A “standard community clinical trial 101 education presentation” is used to provide culturally appropriate, medically accurate information on HIV, HIV vaccines and clinical trials at each of the community forums. Local HIV/AIDS activists, faith-based activists, and community leaders are invited to participate in panel presentations. In addition to the community forums, “Get the 411" brochures and web pages on CEG’s website are used to build interest and awareness among consumers, organizations, and institutions on the HIV issues addressed by the project.
