Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit HIV/AIDS grants promote awareness,

prevention, screening, support and treatment

OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente recently announced more than $1.3 million in statewide Community Benefit grants to help 74 organizations promote HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention, screening, support and treatment for people living with the disease.

The grants were awarded to organizations that provide a wide range of services for people with HIV and AIDS, including youth education, testing, and counseling.

One $60,000 grant will help fund The Living Room, a project of WestCare California in Fresno whose clients will have access to a much-needed food pantry program for HIV-positive community members. The food pantry was re-established last year with Kaiser Permanente's assistance.

Other Northern California grant recipients include the East Bay Community Law Center for their HIV/AIDS Immigration Law Project; Sierra Foothills AIDS Foundation for increasing HIV/AIDS awareness in the Sierra Foothills, and San Francisco's AIDS Emergency Fund for eviction prevention and housing stabilization for people with HIV/AIDS.

"While HIV/AIDS is present throughout all of the communities Kaiser Permanente serves, the disease looks different from one community to the next, and affects people in very different ways," said Michael Allerton, HIV Operations and Policy Leader for Kaiser's Northern California Region. "These grants ensure we help target underserved populations with an emphasis on culturally competent care."

For more information about the grants, or to interview representatives from Kaiser Permanente, please contact please contact Rob Veneski at (559) 285-7034.
