Prioritizing Our People
Prioritizing Our People (POP) focuses on building community wellness, HIV prevention and sexual education. The P.O.P program offers HIV 101, 201, 301 courses for community members and youth to learn even more about their sexual and physical health. It is through the lens of social and radical justice that the P.O.P program works to offer linkage to educational resources, food banks, housing referrals. The P.O.P program continues to provide access to equitable healthcare information, activism, and affirmation to the QTBIPOC community by debunking the myths around HIV to end the epidemic, uplifting the QTIBPOC Community.

Linkage To HIV and PrEP Care: galaei’s P.O.P Program collaborates with local community based organizations to bridge the gap between HIV and PrEP care for QTBIPOC community members who are newly diagnosed with HIV as well as those who seek out PrEP/PEP navigation for community members who are non-reactive and interested in PrEP/PEP.
