HIV/AIDS Community Information Outreach Program (ACIOP)
The ACIOP provides funding for organizations to design and conduct local projects established to improve HIV/AIDS health information access for patients, the affected community, caregivers, and the public; provide access to HIV/AIDS health information in a way that is meaningful to the target population; and increase awareness and use of NLM HIV/AIDS resources.


Ian Aronson was recently awarded a supplement for his project, Mobile Augmented Screening Tool to Increase Adolescent HIV Testing and Linkage to Care. The supplement will help in revising an automated substance use screening to better facilitate self-reporting of opioid use among people aged 16 - 30, and then to create and evaluate media to help prevent initiation of opioid use or progression to opioid use disorder. Also on the supplement is Alex Bennett (Co-I) and Vincent Ramos (consultant).
