Lowell, MA | Lowell Community Health Center

One of the continuing barriers to effectively addressing HIV in the Commonwealth, as noted by both Getting to Zero and the Lowell Community Health Center, is the lack of popular knowledge about the realities of living with HIV, and of healthy and safe behaviors and options for those engaging in high-risk behaviors. This project takes an innovative new approach to social work through the engagement and deployment of people in high-risk communities as educators for their own social networks. Over the next six months, the Lowell CHC will host a series of trainings on various important topics related to HIV, and will incentivize attendance through gift cards, thereby creating an educated body of new social workers to spread awareness about HIV in high-risk communities.
