HIV Testing Feasibility and Acceptability with Low Wage Immigrant
Workers (LWIW)
Investigator: Ifeoma Udoh
Project Partners: Jamila Shipp, Stephanie Cornwell (CALPEP); Christina Grijalva, Scott
Carroll (La Clinica de la Raza); Meredith Minkler, Sandra McCoy (UC Berkeley School of
Public Health)
In partnership with the Street Level Health Project - an organization that works to educate Day
Laborers on occupational and sexual health and safety, promote civic engagement, and build
community networks – the pilot project will provide regular HIV testing through weekly HIV
testing visits from La Clinica de la Raza counselors. In addition, among low wage immigrant
workers reached by Street Level, information will collected among those who decide to test, and
also among those who decline HIV testing services offered in order to better understand barriers
and facilitators to testing among this group. The pilot project seeks to better assess the HIV
services needs of this population with the aim of identifying effective strategies for tailoring and
scaling up HIV testing access among this hidden and hard to reach population.
The objectives of the pilot are:
1) to test a strategy focused on scaling up and improving uptake of HIV testing among low
wage immigrant workers (LWIW) in the Fruitvale District of Oakland, CA between
October 2012 and March 2013;
2) to assess risk behaviors, service delivery needs, and barriers and facilitators of HIV and
other health services utilization among those who choose to test, and among those who
do not; and
3) to develop and strengthen a process for linking LWIW who are HIV positive to care
services at La Clínica.
