Michigan: $1 Million Grant to Expand Local HIV Testing

November 1, 2007

Four local agencies will share a CDC grant of about $1 million to expand HIV testing, especially for African Americans, health officials announced Tuesday. African Americans account for 59 percent of the estimated 17,000 state residents who have HIV/AIDS. "Promoting HIV testing in high-prevalence communities is vital in making individuals aware of their own status and preventing the spread of HIV to others," said Janet Olszewski, director of the Michigan Department of Community Health. Agencies that received funding are Advantage Health Centers of Detroit, Henry Ford Health Systems Emergency Department, Oakland County Health Division, and Wayne County Jail Health Services.
