Gilead COMPASS Initiative®

The Gilead COMPASS Initiative® is working to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Southern United States by collaborating with local community organizations and stakeholders to use evidence-based solutions to meet the needs of people living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS. COMPASS Coordinating Centers are comprised of Emory University Rollins School of Public Health, Southern AIDS Coalition, University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work & Wake Forest University School of Divinity, which create collaborative partnerships to share knowledge on increasing organizational capacity, building awareness, reducing HIV-related stigma, promoting holistic wellness of individuals through mental health services and trauma-informed care, and building faith-based advocacy and spiritually integrated organizations to end the HIV epidemic.
