Philadelphia FIGHT’s Critical Path Project is a digital inclusion training and advocacy program that enables low-income people to have access to the Internet and digital literacy training, and know where to find critical, trustworthy, and lifesaving health information. The Critical Path Project serves all people of all ages.
Critical Path offers Internet services to groups traditionally left behind by technology (poor, disenfranchised and marginalized communities).
- A current and up-to-date website focused on access to the Internet and digital literacy programs and tools
- A suite of technology services that inclue:
- Web-based email
- Website hosting
- Electronic mailing lists for affinity groups.
- Creation and maintenance of Public Computing Centers
- Digital Literacy and Computer classes and worksops for all skill levels
- A mobile computing lab to bring to locations without computers
Critical Path began within the HIV community and has broadened its reach all Philadelphians.
Ensuring that all communities have Internet access is a fundamental and necessary strategy in FIGHT’s mission to end the AIDS epidemic within the lifetime of those currently living with HIV and to address the critical need to access health information and our basic civil rights.
