In partnership with the local health department, Volcano Consulting, LLC is implementing the Ending the HIV Epidemic Orlando Faith-Based Initiative. Although we fully recognize the urgency and seriousness of the covid-19 epidemic, we want to remind our community leaders that we have other health disparities to address. We still have an HIV epidemic that unevenly affects our Black and Brown community members.
We are asking for your time to present valuable information and to have a discussion with churches, congregants, religious groups, health ministries, Bible study groups, and/or other religious and spiritual leadership. At this time, we are asking for these conversations to take place in two zip codes, 32808 and 32818. Based on the information we obtain from you during our discussions, we expect to extend this offer to other communities this summer.
We need at least 30 minutes, but an hour would be ideal. We will briefly discuss the current status of HIV in our local community and then ask for your feedback on how we can reduce HIV and we will ask that you share any of your needs. We will leave you with resources that will help you carry the torch, continuing the messaging in your congregation and community. We will also be available to support you, as needed.
At the very least, we ask that you share this information with your colleagues and anyone else you think may be willing to become a part of the solution to end HIV.
Thank you for reading and sharing!
