Funding Opportunity: Peer-to-Peer Outreach to Curb HIV/AIDS Transmission Among High Risk Minority Youth (CHAT)
The Office of Minority Health, through the CHAT Program, seeks to improve the HIV/AIDS health outcomes of high risk minority youth by supporting community-based efforts to increase HIV/AIDS prevention/education efforts, testing, counseling and referrals.
The CHAT Program will integrate HIV testing, peer educators/lay health workers, counseling and linkages, and social media and technology wide-ranging community model to reduce the risk of infection in high prevalence communities. This project will also encourage partnerships among traditional service providers targeting high risk adolescents, such as substance abuse prevention centers for youth; foster care agencies working with youth; youth serving organizations; youth runaway shelters; and peer-to-peer education programs.
