Abstract

This project intends to provide HIV counseling, testing and referral services for high-risk minority youth in North San Diego County, Calif. According to the report from the Office of AIDS Research of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), more than half of all HIV-infected adolescents are estimated not to have been tested or are unaware of their infection. Therefore, there is an urgent need to reach at-risk youth to provide them with HIV/AIDS services. This project conducts a range of HIV/AIDS education and prevention activities, which include using a peer education model to provide HIV educational workshops and referral services, expanding HIV services by recruiting service providers that work with at-risk minority youth and developing comprehensive resource directory specific to North San Diego County to include community-based health and social services. Process, outcome and impact evaluation will be conducted to document the achievement of intended outcomes, such as an increase in youth participation in clinical social services, increase in HIV/AIDS knowledge, and increase in HIV testing. Both quantitative and qualitative data, such as the number of participating individuals, partnerships developed, HIV testing and counseling sessions, and perception of HIV services, will be collected through document reviews and web-based tracking and monitoring.

OMH objective(s) toward which the project's results most contribute:

  • Increased awareness, education, and outreach to address racial/ethnic minority health and health disparities problems
  • Improved access to, and appropriate utilization of, health and other community-based services and systems through user-centered design for racial/ethnic minorities (e.g., health IT, culturally/ linguistically appropriate services, service provider education/ training, workforce diversity)
