AIDS Alabama provides a variety of HIV prevention education and outreach services in an effort to raise community awareness and prevent new HIV infections.


The ELITE Project is a CDC funded initiative of AIDS Alabama that seeks to provide men’s health information, including HIV prevention education, to young men who have sex with men (MSM) of color. The ELITE Project operates out of a center in Birmingham that provides a welcoming, comfortable area for young gay and bisexual men. The center is a place for these young men to relax, build a support system, and have fun, while at the same time providing opportunities for them to set and achieve goals, and enhance their HIV/STI knowledge and risk reduction behaviors through education and positive initiatives led by members of the community themselves.
