HIV & STI Prevention Coordinator
In achieving the organization’s mission of addressing the healthy development of LGBTQ youth and adults in Wisconsin, the Program Coordinator partners with the Prevention Staff to implement programs to reduce HIV among gay and bisexual men and build capacity in communities and organizations in the Greater Milwaukee area. This work is exciting, engaging, varied, and challenging.
Our HIV CTR (Counseling, Testing, & Referral) program offers individual risk assessment, counseling, HIV and STI testing, prevention education, and referrals to services for HIV-positive people and high-risk negatives in Milwaukee. These services are provided to increase the number of men who know their HIV status, encourage and support men to adopt behaviors to reduce their risk of HIV / STD transmission, and ensure that men are linked to appropriate medical, social, prevention, and partner services as needed.
The CTR program is one component of a comprehensive approach to addressing sexual health for gay and bisexual men, particularly young gay and bisexual men of color. Other parts of the program include leadership development, outreach, small group education, retreats, community planning, and agency consultations.
