The purpose of the Atlanta Latino
Prevention Project (ALPP) is to prevent and reduce substance abuse,
viral hepatitis C and the transmission of HIV/AIDS among at-risk,
Latino young adults (ages 18-24) in Metro Atlanta. The ALPP will
address behavioral disparities by implementing evidence-based
strategies to decrease differences in access, service utilization,
and outcomes among Latino young adults.
To that end, the
project has five goals. Goal One is to conduct a community needs
assessment to determine the magnitude of the problem of substance
abuse, HIV, and viral hepatitis among Latino young adults in Metro
Atlanta; identify the community’s assets and resources for
addressing the problem; identify gaps in services and capacity; and
assess the community’s readiness to act to address the problem.
Goal Two is to develop and enhance local capacity and mobilize
community resources in order to implement effective programs,
practices, and policies to prevent and reduce the onset of Substance
Abuse, reduce sexual risk factors to prevent new HIV and viral
Hepatitis C infection rates, and decrease HIV transmission among
Latino young adults.
Goal Three is to develop a data-driven
comprehensive strategic plan resulting from the documented needs
Goal Four is to select and implement
evidence-based prevention interventions strategies targeting Latino
young adults in collaboration with community partners who will
deliver the services.
Goal Five is to assess the performance
of the Atlanta Latino Prevention Project through ongoing monitoring
and assessment of project activities.
The project is a
collaboration between Georgia State University’s School of Social
