HPCP is part of the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. We serve as facilitator of the HIV prevention and care community planning process in Pennsylvania. The project also provides technical assistance to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, community based agencies, and healthcare providers. Current initiatives include:
- Project SILK
- Capacity Building, including Faith-Based Initiative
- Online Prevention Intervention
Our mission is to work towards decreasing HIV infection and morbidity and mortality associated with HIV and AIDS through scientifically based interventions.
Our work is guided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The needs of local communities are met through a unique collaboration of government, academic, and community stakeholders representing a multidisciplinary approach to HIV prevention and care.
Professional Opportunity at HPCP
Our culturally diverse staff is motivated, in large part, by their personal experiences with HIV and AIDS. Staff members bring an abiding respect for the worth and dignity of humanity, especially marginalized and disenfranchised peoples. HPCP gives priority to the personal and professional growth of its employees and all others with whom staff interact.
