Transcript 12 NEWS DECEMBER 3, 1999 • HOUSTON VOICE Mayor declares 'AIDS emergency' Dozens of ornaments were placed on the Tree of Remembrance during ceremonies Wednesday at the Metropolitan Multiservice Center on West Gray. The somber event started 11 years ago by NAMES Project Houston as a way to focus on AIDS. > Continued from Page 1 dying at 10 times the rate of whites, according to a study released in August at the National HIV Prevention Conference in Atlanta. • The trend continued within the gay population: A study by the New York Department of Health showed that African-American gay and bisexual men were almost twice as likely to die of AIDS as white and Hispanic gay and bisexual men. • The city's five-year plan, developed by its health and human services department, costs an estimated $3 million, most of which the city doesn't have to spend. Brown's call to action on Wednesday targets three groups for intensive HIV prevention efforts: African- American women; gay, bisexual and non-gay identifying black men who have sex with men; and blacks in jail or prison. The plan proposes community-based education and prevention programs, a public information campaign and one-on-one services to modify behaviors that put blacks at higher risk for HIV. Some aspects of the city's plan will be put into action next month; the overall effort may change direction or format as the black community energizes around it, said Kathy Barton, spokeswoman for the city health department. "Our technique on reaching (blacks) may change as our community gets better at it," she said. Much of the city's nearly $5 million annual HIV Prevention Program is already allocated, but officials hope to direct unused funds to the new initiative announced this week, Barton said. The remainder of the program's funding has yet to be raised, she said. "We are actively looking for more money," Barton said. "We hope that the African-American community will rise to the occasion and help us with the money." Of the $3 million program, $861,000 is earmarked for an extended media campaign—advertisements on local radio stations, billboards and inside movie theaters, and posters and brochures. The rest of the funds will be distributed to community-based prevention and education programs, Barton said. But the new initiative will not sap money for existing programs, or prevention and education efforts in the gay community, she said. "That would be the worst thing we could do. Will money be pulled from gay programs to fund these? Certainly we won't do that," Barton said. Discussion part of focused effort Brown said Wednesday that during future speeches and appearances, he will discuss HIV prevention to help combat the problem. There also must be an open discussion about sexual activity and an effort to counter "the millions of media messages that glorify unsafe sex," he said. lackson Lee said the public must also be willing to talk about illegal drug use, which contributes to new HIV infections in the African-American community. "This is the roll your sleeves up day," Jackson Lee said. "I ask us all to be in the fight. As we roll up our sleeves, let no one tell you it is the other guy's problem." Mary desVignes-Kendrick, city health department director, said specifically targeted prevention and education efforts should blanket the area's black Curo Pino Direct Importers of Fine Furniture 'Where The Trade Is Always Welcome' Antique Country Pine at Competitive Prices Alan Morlan • Realtors/Associate Phone: 713-266-4304 Fax: 713-781-8445 E-mail: hbw4gla@acninc.net www.europinedirect.qpg.com 3029 Crossview Houston, TX 77063 • One Block East of Fondren and Westheimer WESTHEIMER ROAD O s u RICHMOND AVENIIF N
