South Carolina Roundtable

DATE:
June 4, 2008


LOCATION:
Midlands Training Center
8301 Farrow Road, Columbia


DESCRIPTION:
South Carolina has experienced a rapid increase in its Latino population in recent years, which shows few signs of abating. For AIDS service provider agencies, this sudden influx has presented challenges as they struggle to formulate appropriate prevention strategies, reach affected persons and provide care. They often face linguistic and cultural barriers in forging ties with an unfamiliar and unusually transient population. Bilingual professionals are hard to recruit even when resources are available to support them.
