Title: Migrant Action Project (MAP)
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: Shelley Davis
Target Population:


Health Issues: HIV/AIDS

The Migrant Action Project is designed to develop effective, replicable, national strategies to promote HIV/AIDS prevention among ethnically diverse migrant workers and their families, using peer education, coalition building, social marketing campaigns, and community forums. Peer education programs are the cornerstones of the project’s approach and are utilized to improve migrants’ access to and utilization of HIV/AIDS services. Two culturally and linguistically appropriate curricula are employed. Lideres Campesinos Por La Salud/Farmworker Leaders for Health which is designed to train volunteer promotores de salud to provide HIV prevention education to the entire family; and Young Latino Promotores utilizes a science-based “Mpowerment” intervention to encourage safer sex practices among young migrant men who have sex with men. Local community-wide coalitions bring service providers together with promotores who work to break down barriers which keep migrants from using services, and to help ensure the availability of services to the largely non-English speaking, hard-to-reach migrant community. Social marketing, including public service announcements, reinforces prevention, testing, and care messages. Community forms are used to bring together promotores, outreach workers and volunteers to build skills, network and share lessons learned. Activities are implemented in nine states: Alabama, Arizona, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, and Tennessee, and vary by community.
