Decades of Experience in HIV Prevention

Our HIV Prevention Team has over 22 years of experience educating the people of Greater Richmond about HIV and AIDS and advocating to eliminate the stigma associated with the disease. 

NATIONAL STRATEGY ALIGNMENT

We have aligned our vision, goals and strategy with the National HIV/AIDS strategy, a plan that details principles, priorities and actions to guide the national response to the epidemic.

VISION

Greater Richmond will become a place where new HIV infections are rare, and when they do occur, every person regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socio-economic circumstance will have unfettered access to high quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination.

GOALS
  • Reduce new HIV infections.

  • Improve access to care and health outcomes.

  • Reduce HIV-related health disparities.

  • Achieve a more coordinated response.

STRATEGY
  • Mass media campaigns

  • Community mobilization events

  • Behavioral interventions

  • Condom distribution

ESPECIALLY FOR CHURCHES

Your help is needed to eliminate the stigma.

The church has been considered the strongest, most influential institution within the black community. A basic role of the church is to care for those who are sick, those who are lonely, and those who are in need. While much stigma has surrounded the topic of HIV/AIDS in the African-American community, the church can be a resource for its congregation, providing a message of love and education.
