Chicago, Illinois, January 7, 2013—On December 23, 2012, Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) received a $100,000 grant from the Alphawood Foundation and $40,510 from the Gilead Foundation for PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) education and programming.

The Alphawood Foundation funding will allow TPAN to continue and expand its HIV/AIDS-related programs for hundreds of individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS living below the federal poverty level, who struggle with co-morbidities such as history of substance use, incarceration, mental illness, and lack of family support. The funding allows TPAN to provide these services free of charge.

Funds received from Gilead will be used to design and produce PrEP informational materials and to host community education forums for care providers, individuals living with or at high risk for HIV, and to deliver one-to-one PrEP counseling. It will also allow for the inclusion of PrEP information for couples who participate in TPAN's support group, TheTwoOfUs, developed for serodiscordant couples where one partner is HIV-positive and the other is HIV-negative.

About TPAN

TPAN is the oldest peer-led HIV/AIDS social service organization in Chicago. TPAN's mission is to empower everyone living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS to live open, healthy, and productive lives. TPAN delivers innovative peer-led support programs and collaborative wellness services and disseminates accurate, comprehensive information through direct service programming and its national treatment journal Positively Aware. TPAN will continue to do so until HIV/AIDS is eradicated.

It awards grants to more than 200 organizations annually, primarily in the areas of advocacy, architecture and preservation, arts, domestic violence prevention, the environment, promotion and protection of the rights of LGBT citizens and people living with HIV/AIDS, and other human and civil rights.
