JACQUES Initiative Joins Maryland AIDS Administration to Extend HIV Testing to the Faith-Based Community
Date:7/21/2009

There are more churches in our community than there are hospitals."

During today's City Uprising, out-of-state volunteers, community and faith-based supporters and the JACQUES Initiative will recruit citizens to eleven HIV testing sites across Baltimore with a goal to test 1,000 members of the public for HIV.

About JACQUES Initiative

In 2002, the Institute of Human Virology was awarded $400,000 from The Abell Foundation to launch the JACQUES Initiative National Pilot Program. This pilot program demonstrated the success of providing daily and weekly observed therapy to help people living with HIV and treated with antiretroviral therapy overcome barriers of adherence to their HIV medications. Through public and private funding, the JACQUES Initiative currently provides HIV care and support to Baltimoreans including HIV primary medical care, case management, transportation, HIV testing and linkage to care in addition to its unique treatment adherence program.

About the Institute of Human Virology (IHV)

Formed in 1996 as a partnership between the State of Maryland, the City of Baltimore, the University System of Maryland and the University of Maryland Medical System, IHV is an institute of the University of Maryland School of Medicine and is home to some of the most globally-recognized and world-renowned experts in all of virology.
