The purpose of these materials is to serve as a resource to encourage and facilitate AIDS education in order to prevent the disease.

These four objectives of the AIDS education program are presented with relevant teacher materials, work sheets, fact sheets, and activity descriptions: (1) individual responsibility for prevention; (2) basic information about communicable disease; (3) basic information about AIDS; and (4) reducing or eliminating risk of AIDS.
