Matthew 25’s AIDS Prevention Team uses innovative techniques to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS, and thanks to the collaborative efforts within the tri-state community, prevention and outreach efforts have expanded. Safe Behavior kits are distributed to area locations to help promote risk reduction. The prevention team of Matthew 25 AIDS Services also offers confidential HIV/Hepatitis C testing in numerous outreach locations. This is all due to the great efforts of the prevention team, the wonderful volunteers, and the area organizations.
Matthew 25 AIDS Services has been able to complete thousands of free HIV/Hepatitis C tests throughout the area due to the ability to offer testing in more accessible, non-clinical and confidential settings.
Matthew 25 also participates in numerous health fairs and national conferences, conducts HIV-101 educational trainings, and participates in several area functions.
Not only is Matthew 25 AIDS Services actively involved in prevention awareness within the tri-state region, but we also have been active with national conference participation and presentation on successful HIV prevention efforts as well as holding events such as National Black HIV Awareness Day, National HIV Testing Day, the AIDS Walk, and World AIDS Day.
Administrator, Cyndee Burton has been honored as one of the top ten Registered Nurses for Excellence in HIV Care in the nation by The Body.com. Our entire prevention team participates with area Collaborative Partners, and held a very successful meeting with the AIDS Resource Group and the Evansville Black Coalition to continue in all of our efforts in continuing HIV prevention and care services.
Matthew 25 AIDS Services, Inc. has come a long way in just a few years… even over the last 525,600 minutes we are finding that we have been able to greatly increase our visibility and accessibility. All of this is due to the wonderful volunteers and the support of the community.
