Alabama: Groups to Assess Birmingham's Untreated HIV-Positive Population
December 18, 2012
AIDS United has given $750,000 to three Birmingham organizations to ascertain the number of HIV-positive persons in the Birmingham region who are not receiving treatment. With this grant, the University of Alabama at Birmingham's 1917 Clinic and the organization Birmingham AIDS Outreach (BAO) will hire two social workers and a project director to gather data on the HIV-positive residents, according to BAO executive director Karen Musgrove. Aletheia House, a substance abuse treatment and prevention service organization, will use $2,000 to provide office space for the social workers at its facility.
