Strong bodies and minds make for strong communities. We envision a community where all individuals and families receive affordable and equitable health services, live in a health-promoting environment, and exhibit healthy behaviors.

Health | Bernalillo County
Grant Amount: $14,500
Grant Term: 2018 - 2019
Program Website: Albuquerque Area HIV Capacity Project

The New Mexico Community AIDS Partnership (NMCAP) was founded in 1993 and works to assure that the diverse populations of New Mexico receive high quality, culturally appropriate HIV prevention, education and care.  We focus on innovative and collaborative programs, targeting otherwise underserved and vulnerable populations.  

Recognizing that social and economic determinants strongly affect individuals’ and communities’ risk of HIV infection as well as their access to medical care  and support services, we work with others to address inequities in access to care and services and to increase equity and social justice

This project is designed to fill gaps in service and increase regional capacity for HIV prevention, education and services. We complete an annual needs assessment and confer with  local providers of HIV services and community members to assure that our work is addressing the most urgent community needs and does not duplicate other efforts.

CGC's bereavement peer support groups offer an age appropriate venue for young people and their caregivers to share feelings and experiences with those in similar situations. Feeling alone, confused and angry are common emotions after the death of a loved one. Groups work to mitigate the risk that painful feelings transform into lifelong struggles.
