The purpose of this program is to support and enhance the ability of U.S. Affiliated Pacific Island jurisdictions to design, implement, and evaluate comprehensive HIV prevention programs. A comprehensive HIV prevention program should include the following components: (1) Prevention program planning that is informed by the local community and utilizes the best available information and evidence to direct HIV prevention program activities; (2) HIV prevention activities such as HIV prevention counseling, testing, and referral services (CTRS); partner services (PS); prevention for HIV-infected persons; health education/risk reduction (HE/RR) activities; public information programs; and perinatal transmission prevention; (3) Program monitoring and quality assurance; (4) Capacity-building activities; (5) Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) prevention activities; (6) Program collaboration and coordination with other related programs (e.g. viral hepatitis prevention); (7) Laboratory support; and, (8) HIV/AIDS epidemiologic and behavioral surveillance.
The goal of this program is to reduce transmission of HIV by building capacity of health departments to (1) Deliver targeted, sustained, and evidence-based HIV prevention messages, activities and, when possible, interventions, including prevention of perinatal HIV transmission; (2) Implement proven public health strategies such as HIV/STD partner services; (3) Develop systems and relationships to ensure clients are linked to appropriate prevention, care, and treatment services; and, (4) Develop and implement capacity-building, program monitoring, and quality assurance policies and procedures to support continuous program improvement.
