CIRCLES

The target population in CIRCLES is African American and Latino youth and young adults between the ages of 13-29, who are from communities that are at increased risk to contract HIV and STIs: Transgender, Men who have Sex with Men (MSM), substance users including People Who Inject Drugs (PWID), and sex-workers, as well as communities that experience systemic marginalization which increases risk to HIV through a lack of access to health care or information. HEPPAC will continue to provide harm reduction based education and prevention services in the neighborhoods of North Richmond, and Oakland. CIRCLES IV will utilize a network developed in CIRCLES III, of community members, youth centers, non-profit organizations and county public service agencies, with the goal of increasing HIV screening and early detection. It is critical that we continue to build on the work done in CIRCLES III to establish sustainable and well-utilized HIV screening programs for youth and young adults in local communities most affected by health disparities. HEPPAC's goals for CIRCLES IV are t 1) increase the number of youth and young adult residents of Oakland and North Richmond who are aware of their HIV status, 2) provide linkage to care and treatment services for sexually transmitted infections and HIV if needed, and 3) increase the number of youth and young adult residents of Oakland and North Richmond who practice protective behaviors to decrease their risk for HIV and STIs. Program goals will be achieved by peer based community outreach, youth specific leadership development internship, distribution of risk reduction supplies, intensive harm reduction counseling and self-advocacy skills training.

Population(s) Served

The Point Project is a program that aims to 1) increase knowledge of HIV positivity and 2) access to care/treatment and to 3) refer high-risk HIV negative individuals to preventative counseling interventions. The Point Project achieves this by implementing expanded HIV testing, CRCS comprehensive risk-reduction counseling, and linakage to care.

Population(s) Served

The goals of the expanded testing initiative is to 1) remove stigma to HIV testing, 2) routinize HIV testing in clinical intake processes, and to 3) connect those found positive to treatment/care.
