Providing HIV consultation, education and mentoring to healthcare professionals
The Howard University HBCU-HIV/HCV Prevention Program (H3P)
The Howard University HBCU-HIV/HCV Prevention Program (H3P) was focused on addressing HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV) prevention among students currently enrolled on the campus of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
The project trained campus health service providers on PrEP and effective HIV and HCV testing and counseling approaches. Simultaneously, the project conducted a social marketing campaign targeting students to raise their awareness of the HIV threat and how to reduce their personal risk of infection.
This was accomplished via enhancing participants’ skills and knowledge on ways to protect themselves from contracting HIV and HCV via behavioral and biomedically approved approaches such as PrEP.
This Project was funded by a grant from Gilead Sciences, Inc.
