Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority A34Life HIV/AIDS Prevention Project- Empowering Women in Every Community!
The parallel event will present the Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority A34Life HIV/AIDS Prevention Project Model to attendees. At the conclusion attendees will have the information needed to develop a replicable peer model train the trainer HIV/AIDS prevention project in their community; create cross-cultural health education interventions and consider non-traditional methods that empower women to take charge of their sexual health and well-being. The A34Life Initiative began in September 2010 when Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated was awarded over $500,000 in grant funding through a 5-year cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to participate as a partner in the Act Against AIDS Leadership Initiative (AAALI). AAALI is a $16 million, six-year partnership between the CDC and 19 of the leading United States civic and social justice organizations, dedicated to providing education and awareness to communities hardest hit by HIV. Sigma Gamma Rho is the only national sorority to receive five years of consecutive grant funding focusing on HIV prevention.
