To achieve health equity for Black same-gender-loving men through direct support advocacy and building collective community power.
To end death, shame and stigma for Black same-gender-loving men living with HIV.
To achieve this goal, THRIVE SS developed the Undetectables Model. This combines online support, in-person support and social or “Judy” support to rapidly and effectively address the issues faced by Black people living with HIV.
These issues include:
- Reaching viral suppression or “Undetectable” status
- Disclosing their HIV status
- Addressing needs such as housing, employment, and medical care.
- Finding support networks of persons with similar lived experiences and cultural backgrounds.
THRIVE SS strives to be a leader in advocating for communities of color, and, in so doing, serve as a model that inspires other jurisdictions around the country. The company aims to continuously engage our communities and organizations to build collective power, and to use said power to end the HIV epidemic.
