Challenge

IAPAC has developed an educational roadmap that facilitates adult learning for people at risk or living with HIV/AIDS in high affected areas. This roadmap will target people who rely more on visual and oral communication. The program centers around a culturally appropriate, navigator-friendly HIV Roadmap that allows individuals to discuss complex issues such as facts and myths, the importance and implications of testing, dealing with a positive diagnosis, and initiating care and treatment.

Solution

Each roadmap can facilitate conversations by up to eight individuals and a trained facilitator. A donation of $10 covers the cost of two HIV Roadmaps and an accompanying Facilitator’s Guide.

Long-Term Impact

IAPAC aims to provide its network of 7,436 clinics in sub-Saharan Africa with two HIV Roadmap Kits. If fully funded, this HIV literacy project could impact over 100,000 people at risk for or living with HIV/AIDS.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
