Every June Philadelphia FIGHT collaborates with human service organizations to present updated HIV prevention and treatment information to agency staff.

The We Can Stop AIDS Presentation covers the following topics:
AIDS and HIV disease statistics (global, national and here in the Philadelphia region)
How AIDS and HIV disease is impacted by poverty, stigma, substance abuse, incarceration;
Preventing HIV disease transmission
The special risk issues facing women, youth and the mentally ill.

Philadelphia FIGHT staff and Peer Educators will travel to your agency or organization bringing refreshments.

Participants will leave the presentation with in depth knowledge of the difference between HIV and AIDS; background on the impact of AIDS worldwide; in depth knowledge of the epidemic in the Philadelphia region and the impact that AIDS is having on Philadelphia community and how to find resources and services for clients who are facing the challenge of HIV disease in their community, their family or themselves. Print materials and resources will be distributed to all participants.

Presentations can be tailored to the specific needs of your agency or organization and last between 1.5 and 2 hours.
