Por Vida

The Por Vida Program will enhance system infrastructure capacity to support and sustain culturally and generationally responsive substance abuse and HIV/STI prevention and screening/testing services to the Latino youth and young adults in Pima County. Por Vida seeks to improve services for those at highest risk of HIV and substance use disorders and implements a navigation approach: community health workers, neighborhood navigators and peer support specialists. Youth engagement and adult participation is established through educational sessions which utilizes the Cuidate and Too Good for Drugs curriculums. Both curriculums implement innovative, culturally and generationally responsive prevention and navigation approaches to serve Southern Arizona’s Latino Gen Z population (13-24) in Pima County.
