Prevention is Treatment and Arkansas RAPPS is in the Endgame!


Arkansas RAPPS and The Strilite Foundation, Inc. supports the development of prevention initiatives being deployed around the state. It is essential that these efforts are a part of our coordinated efforts to end new HIV infections by 2030. 

SARF is a Prevention Program to Reduce Health

Disparities by Decreasing Substance Abuse, HIV,

and Related Stigma impacting 18-24-year-olds in

Arkansas, particularly Minority Populations.

Also, the initiative seeks to increase SA and HIV knowledge/awareness and protective behaviors by 10% among young adult AAs in 12 AR colleges/ communities. Services align with academic semesters Fall 2019 - Spring 2023.

This 5-year initiative will be deployed and supported by a cross-section of community partners such as UAMS, Arkansas Minority Health Commission, UALR, Arkansas Department of Health, RED, Arkansas HIV Planning Group and LinQ for Life.

Arkansas RAPPS Launches Prep 2 Live!

 Arkansas RAPPS is proud to take the lead in developing the state's first PrEP awareness campaign in 2017, which included a social media campaign and branded PrEP marketing materials. In 2019 we participated in the National HIV Testing Day on June 27th and continues to address access to Prep in Arkansas. For more info go the P2L website at www.P2L.com, the PrEP locator at www.pleaseprepme.org and Prep Navigation Resouces by clicking the campaign photo.

Is Taking PrEP the Right Choice for You?

Since late-2010, when the first data showed that PrEP is an effective HIV prevention intervention, PrEP’s implementation has been piecemeal and incomplete, especially in Arkansas. We believe that this important modality must be a part of our forward-looking vision to decreasing new HIV infections and we support the use of this life-saving strategy as a part of our health navigation services. For access to PrEP services contact our partner provider, Infectious Disease Resource Group at 501.661-0037 or www.littlerockid.com
