HIV/STD Prevention Program
The primary goal of this project is to empower college/university students with special emphasis on African-Americans and Native Americans to change behaviors that place them at risk for HIV and STD infections. Peer Health Educators have been trained to promote HIV prevention through health education/risk reduction messages amongst their peers. Campus Coordinators have been identified to oversee prevention activities such as health fairs, HIV/AIDS counseling and testing events, STD screenings, public service announcements, social marketing campaigns, and student leadership development workshops. Funding Agency: N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.
