    Taxonomy Code: JP-1500.1700-050

    Programs that attempt to control the occurrence of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), a group of symptoms (including certain infections and/or cancers) that collectively characterize the condition and are the result of a weakening of the immune system caused by infection with HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). Activities include surveillance of the occurrence of the disease in the community, investigation of individual cases, and development of case histories and other interventions that will help to increase the medical establishment's understanding of the causes of the diseases and potential methods of prevention and cure. AIDS control activities are often initiated by local HIV prevention planning groups that are responsible for developing needs assessments and planning long and short-term strategies specific to target communities as determined by the studies.

    Philadelphia FIGHT - Project TEACHProject TEACH (Treatment Education Activists Combating HIV) is an innovative health education program which trains people living with HIV/AIDS to act as peer educators, activists and advocates in the under-served communities hardest hit by the AIDS pandemic -- low-income communities and communities of color. TEACH focuses not only on prevention but treatment education, outreach and advocacy. Project TEACH began 1996 and has since graduated more than 1,600 people. Our core training program teaches people living with HIV the basics of secondary prevention and methods of communicating this information to others living with HIV. It is founded on the belief that people have a right to know about their own bodies and to determine their own health care. Project TEACH classes are twice a week for nine weeks. Classes run in the spring, summer, and fall and are open to anyone who is living with HIV. Topics include staying healthy when you are HIV positive through assertive use of health care, pharmaceutical and complementary therapies, prevention and early treatment of infections, nutrition, clinical trials, stress reduction and peer support. Many of our graduates have gone on to become peer educators or community leaders in the field of HIV/AIDS care. In addition to Project TEACH, we offer TEACH Outside, available to HIV positive people who have been incarcerated; Latino TEACH, available to HIV positive Spanish speakers (classes held at Prevention Point Philadelphia); and weekly TEACH alumni meetings for TEACH and TEACH Outside graduates, held every Wednesday at 3pm.
