TORDS-Technology Outreach to Reduce health Disparities and Stigma

Project: TORDS-Technology Outreach to Reduce health Disparities and Stigma is a multi-faceted project designed in 2012. This program designed to address the health needs of rural communities in Southern WV and Southwestern Virginia while providing HIV information during health education for health disparities and the social determinates of health that directly affect rural, poverty-stricken communities with special emphasis on Health technology and communities of color. Over the years, our health and prevention programs design was based on community needs and health epidemiology profiles that indicate community needs. CORDS programming was developed to incorporate health disparities education with HIV Prevention. SCED program targets rural low-income, underserved, and uninsured persons in Southern West Virginia to include HIV and high-risk populations. if funded, we will utilize the funds to incorporate COVID-19 Prevention in the current outreach program to include PPE Kits to all participants.
