HIV/AIDS Initiative for Minority Men (AIMM)

The AIMM Initiative specifically addresses the unmet needs of young racial and ethnic minority men who have sex with men (MSM) who are between the ages of 20-29 and young minority males living with HIV/AIDS or at high risk for HIV infections. The AIMM Initiative will establish a comprehensive Integrated Center for Care and Supportive Services (ICCSS) that employs evidence-based disease management and preventive health program and supportive services to:

  • Reduce the transmission of HIV;
  • Address gaps and fragmentation of HIV/AIDS treatment;
  • Reduce HIV/AIDS stigma and barriers to culturally and linguistically appropriate care;
  • Address social determinants of health that impede treatment adherence;
  • Prevent opportunistic infections
  • Improve clinical outcomes of MSM and young minority males living with HIV or at high risk for HIV infections.
