Afro Pride Federation, Inc is partnered with local HIV/AIDS Healthcare Providers to provide STI/HIV prevention, education, testing, and linkage. Our mental health & substance abuse service providers are culturally informed with years of experience in HIV/AIDS-related co-occurring mental disorders, substance abuse, and implementing evidence-based interventions. Afro Pride Federation Inc launches HIV/AIDS campaigns related to stigma, prevention, awareness, fundraising, and resources. Stigma in the Black & Brown LGBTQ+ community in Broward county plays a big role in barriers to healthcare. In our support groups and community collaboration meetings, we often discuss issues relating to individuals avoiding healthcare due to not wanting their families, friends, employers, and others to know about their diagnosis. Members of this population also frequently mention barriers to care relating to racism and discrimination. The issue of cultural mistrust of institutions serving Black & Brown LGBTQ+ populations is a subject that often arises during discussions. Afro Pride Federation Inc continues to cultivate community-driven strategies to combat the high rates of HIV/AIDS in the Black & Brown LGBTQ+ population in South Florida.
