          Abstract

          The Campus and Community HIV and Addiction Prevention (CCHAP) project was a collaborative effort between three academic institutions and a community-based organization to conduct rapid HIV testing, assess substance use behaviors, and provide education on HIV risk behaviors for African Americans, 18-24, attending historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and within the surrounding community. As a result of this partnership 2,385 participants received a rapid HIV test, with testing split almost equally between the campus and the community. The positivity rate was .6% (N = 15) with 10 newly diagnosed individuals accounting for 67% of the HIV positives. The results of the partnership provide evidence of a successful outreach program for both the campus and community, and identified a continued need for HIV testing and educational outreach for African American young adults 18-24.
