A new paradigm in HIV training and education
Peer-Powered Practical Assistance
Take the Assessment
Organizations and individuals working with this community have long had access to established training and education programming and technical assistance as offered by the CDC, HRSA, AETCs and others. What’s been missing from these more traditional formats, approaches, and curriculum is us. We, as Black SGL men living with HIV, are our best resource, our most fervent advocate, and we know what works in our own lives. Read more…
THRIVE’s 3PA curriculum is designed to help CBOs, ASOs, FBOs, and providers and communities translate their ambitions into results. We invite you to take a tour of our site to learn more about our approach. To help you decide where to start, feel free to take the 3PA survey and get in touch with our team once you’re ready to help your community THRIVE.
We, as Black SGL men living with HIV, are our best resource, our most fervent advocate, and we know what works in our own lives. As peers, we know what we need, we know what works in keeping us engaged in care, and we see each other more clearly than anyone else can.
That’s why THRIVE is proud to welcome you to a new paradigm in HIV training and education: Peer-Powered Practical Assistance – or 3PA.
THRIVE’s R3 model – indigenously designed and delivered – is a community-driven response to the overwhelming number of Black SLG men living with HIV who are routinely lost to care. In developing the peer-led model, we improved on CDC EBI best practices by centering our distinct needs, desires, lessons, insights, and lived experiences as Black Same Gender Loving men living with HIV. R3 improves the quality of life of Black SGL men living with HIV through health forums, community engagement and linkage events, peer-led individualized health care support, advocacy trainings, social+digital campaigns, ceremonies to celebrate the resilience of Black SGL Men living with HIV, and more!
Starting with the principal that our friendships and support networks are essential to our wellness and well-being, THRIVE established “Undetectables Atlanta” – or UA – in what year? Today reaching more than 2,500 Black SGL, UA is a comprised of 13 subgroups, each organized around community network affinities. See the UA Curriculum to learn more about how to adapt the UA model into your community.
