B.E.E.P. (BLACK WOMEN EDUCATED AND EMPOWERED ON PREVENTION)
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 23% of all Americans living with HIV at the end of 2014 were women. The CDC also anticipates that 1 in 48 Black women will contract HIV in her lifetime if current trends continue. Our B.E.E.P program for Black women is tailored to introduce and educate participants on prevention options to protect themselves and their partners from HIV acquisition. These prevention tools include affirming messaging around abstinence, condom usage, routine HIV/STI testing, and education on PrEP.
