Title: Positive African American Network
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: Terje Anderson
Target Population:

Black/African American; Adolescent to Adult

Health Issues: HIV/AIDS

The primary goal of the Positive African American Network is to improve the health status of African Americans by engaging organizations serving African Americans in appropriate, accessible and available education and outreach efforts. The National HIV/AIDS Testing Day is the pivotal event for project activities, with particular emphasis on young HIV positive African Americans. The project is designed to develop customized media messages for African Americans, create a link to local communities and community health care resources, increase the number of African American service providers, and continue building a network of partners engaged in the National HIV/AIDS Testing Day campaign. A network of 10 local community-based African American HIV/AIDS Team Captains forms the African American Positive Network, which will work to catalyze voluntary counseling and testing locally for the National HIV/AIDS Testing Day events. The ten communities that participate in the Network are located in New York, NY, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, PA, Baltimore, MD, Miami, FL, Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, Newark, NJ, Los Angeles, CA and Houston, TX. The National HIV/AIDS Testing Day campaign will include a segment for African Americans. The project will prepare for the campaign by training the Team Captains to coordinate media events, health fairs, town hall meetings, focus groups, and screening days at local health departments. The national office will train Team Captains, develop a guide explaining how to conduct a National HIV/AIDS Testing Day campaign in local areas with limited resources, design and disseminate media kits, and identify local partner agencies.
