iPrevent OHL is an innovative and interactive program rooted in addressing and providing resources for substance abuse and HIV/Hep C prevention programming to New Orleans Youth. Did you know that in 2015, new HIV diagnoses in youth aged 13-24 accounted for 26% of all new diagnoses? The majority of new diagnoses among youth are male (81%), black (84%), and are gay, bisexual or other men who have sex with men (78%).
iPrevent is a community effort to increase awareness and mobilize our community to address various complex issues to which our youth are exposed. Through interactive platforms like our radio station, podcasts, social media, health centers, and community events, we aim to educate, equip, and empower our youth! At Odyssey House Louisiana we provide holistic and client-centered services in a safe environment that address the full continuum of special care needs for the state of Louisiana.
iPrevent is funded through a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) grant.
