In September of 2006, Turning the TIDE received a three-year award of approximately $180,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health, in partnership with the Philadelphia AIDS Consortium and Williams Medical Center.  These resources will support the development of the use of rapid testing technology for HIV/AIDS in West Philadelphia.    Through this partnership, the West Philadelphia Minority Health Collaborative, Turning the TIDE is building local infrastructure for the provision of HIV/AIDS services within the community.
