Project Description:

The Gilead COMPASS (COMmitment to Partnership in Addressing HIV/AIDS in Southern States) InitiativeTM is a 10-year initiative working to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Southern United States by partnering with local communities and supporting evidence-based solutions to meet the needs of people living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS. Three Coordinating Centers – Emory University Rollins School of Public Health, Southern AIDS Coalition, and University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work - were selected to address three overarching programmatic focus areas by creating collaborative partnerships, increasing organizational capacity, building awareness, reducing HIV-related stigma, advancing education, sharing knowledge, and promoting the well-being of individuals through mental health services and trauma-informed care.

The Emory COMPASS Coordinating Center specifically focuses on the following: (1) supporting organizational capacity building in the Southern United States through grant making, training and technical assistance, and evaluation; (2) promoting knowledge sharing through innovative platforms to facilitate community collaboration and access to and discussion of best practices; and (3) developing resource directories and state of the art maps to identify underserved areas of the South. Four cores support the work of the Emory Coordinating Center: Administrative Core, Capacity Building and Community Engagement Core, Portal and Communications Core, and Geospatial Core. Although the cores work collaboratively to support the work of the entire center, this position will specifically support the work of the Portal and Communications Core. This core oversees internal and external communications for the initiative, the development of a public and private portal, and data collection and evaluation.
