In Florida, an estimated one in every 46 blacks is infected with HIV (cialis professional еreating HIV infection when used along with other medicines) Churches and other faith-based organizations are an essential part of the black neighborhood. They are often located in areas with large concentrations of people hardest hit by HIV (cialis professional еreating HIV infection when used in combination with other medicines) and can play an important role in guiding the minority community. Faith-based organizations reach people in communities, understand felt needs and can foster community resources and involvement in ways public health often cannot. Public health can provide the scientific background, infrastructure and funding essential to the success of prevention efforts. Unfortunately, collaborations between faith-based organizations and public health have been underutilized in HIV prevention. We report the development of Churches United to Stop HIV (CUSH), a collaborative project designed to provide HIV/AIDS education and training to faith-based organizations in Broward County, FL.
