Specifically, HIV Alliance’s Education Program achieves its mission by presenting HIV/HCV education to middle and high school age youth, youth in treatment and corrections, and LGBTQ+ and Latinx youth groups in Lane, Marion, and Douglas Counties where communicating HIV and Hepatitis C information is not only important, but also necessary within Oregon’s mandated education curriculum. By conducting outreach to these communities, HIV Alliance helps alleviate poverty and health education disparity by providing free youth education to low-income communities, schools, and rural areas and through sharing follow up resources and sexual health information, and encouraging youth to engage in free testing resources.
