California: New Web Site Offers Information on HIV/AIDS Plague in Black Communities
August 1, 2008
OneLove, a project of Ontrack Resources funded by the California Office of AIDS, has established a Web site that tackles the impact of AIDS and health disparities among the state's African Americans.
Prevention professionals find the site helpful as well: "When developing policy, it's necessary to know the history and who's already done the research so that we're not trying to reinvent the wheel," said Uhuti.
Jamal Bey, project manager for OneLove, said the site seeks to support regional collaboration among various groups doing HIV prevention work. He said he hopes the site will add podcasts to promote such cooperation.
OneLove complements the objectives of AB 1142, which was signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2005 and targets the HIV/AIDS epidemic among blacks in five regions: Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, Sacramento and the Central Valley, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
