A few select recent or key HIV/AIDS-related projects include:
HIV Prevention with Positives, The Friends for Life Corporation
The Friends for Life Corporation in Memphis has recently created HIV Prevention for Positives modeled after the CDC HIV Prevention Case Management Guidance. The program offers case management, group skill-building sessions, and drop-in maintenance sessions. Philliber has created a process and outcome evaluation system to monitor risk reduction goals over time.
Keeping Healthy Keeping Safe/Peer Education, Mid-South AIDS Fund/Girls Inc of Memphis
Keeping Healthy, Keeping Safe is a Mid-South AIDS Fund supported program offered by Girls Incorporated of Memphis. The program targets girls aged 12-18 years. The design of the program calls for the training of high school-aged young women to become effective HIV peer educators for their community. These peer educators are then expected to teach back to 900 peers. The theory behind the program design is that through training and teach back opportunities, peer educators who have completed the program as well as those they teach will report reduced behavioral risk (e.g., practice of abstinence, increased condom and contraceptive use, and reduced number of sexual partners) as well improved decision-making skills.
Responsible Sex Education Institute, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) is a nonprofit organization committed to ensuring every individual has the information, education, services and freedom to make healthy, responsible decisions about their sexuality. By providing health services, comprehensive sex education, and strategic advocacy, PPRM empowers individuals to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health. The Responsible Sex Education Institute, the education arm of PPRM, provides comprehensive, medically accurate and developmentally appropriate sex education through short- and long-term programs that target individuals of all ages. The Institute implements evidence-based programs including Draw the Line, Respect the Line and Safer Choices. Philliber provided program evaluation services for Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains (PPRM) for eight years.
The Boston Pediatric AIDS Project, the Bronx Pediatric AIDS Consortium, and the Brooklyn Pediatric AIDS Network for the Ryan White AIDS Foundation.
The Boston Pediatric AIDS Project provided services to women and children at risk of HIV infection in 15 Boston locations with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Philliber worked with this project to develop and maintain similar data systems and to provide reports to document services and outcomes to women and children with or at risk of HIV infections. The Bronx Pediatric AIDS Consortium served women and children at risk of HIV infection at eight locations in the Bronx with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration. Philliber developed and maintained data systems and provided reports to document services and outcomes to women and children with or at risk of HIV infections. The Brooklyn Pediatric AIDS Network provided services to women and children at risk of HIV infection in 9 Brooklyn locations with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Philliber worked with the Network since its inception in 1989 through 2002 to develop and maintain data systems and to provide reports to document and describe infants, children, and adolescents identified at risk of HIV infection, document services provided in the case management of HIV infected women and their children, and document outcomes of services provided to stabilize and support families with or at risk for HIV infected children.
The Minority AIDS Initiative for Ryan White CARE Act Title I Funded Programs, The US Department of Health and Human Services, HIV/AIDS Bureau
The Minority AIDS Initiative for Ryan White CARE Act Title I Funded Programs in New York City supports 20 grantees in New York City who provide treatment education, treatment adherence services, and/or transitional housing and supportive services for special populations or prison releases. Philliber conducted a process and outcome evaluation for each of these grantees from 2002 to 2006. Each grantee receives a semi-annual report describing the clients they are serving, their treatment adherence, their health, and changes in treatment adherence and health over time. In addition to the separate reports, comprehensive reports are produced combining data from the separate grantees. These data provide a broad picture of the status and progress of clients served by the Initiative as well as an opportunity to explore other issues.
