The Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS received a major HIV prevention program grant awarded by the Arizona Department of Health Services, funded by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC is pursuing a “high-impact prevention” approach to reducing new HIV infections by using combinations of scientifically proven, cost-effective and scalable interventions targeted to high-risk populations in geographic areas of the United States most affected by HIV/AIDS.

Southwest Center’s awarded prevention grant will provide more than $1 million over five years to provide a high-impact combination of individual, group and large-scale community interventions to stop the spread of HIV by working specifically with those who are diagnosed with the HIV/AIDS virus.
