Adolescents, AIDS and HIV. Resources.
Resources for Educators, v5 Nov 1990
This compilation of educational resources is designed for communities which have been either overlooked in Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) education efforts or disproportionately affected by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. The materials listed target Blacks, Latinos, Asians and Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, young women, out-of-school youth, homeless youth, and sexual minority youth. The materials also highlight a range of factors, such as feelings of disenfranchisement and the cultural constructs surrounding sex and drug use. Adolescents have been designated as a key target population for HIV-prevention education programs. However, many teens, both informed and uninformed, continue to engage in risky behaviors, and adolescent AIDS cases among Blacks, Latinos, and young women are disportionately high as represented in the current statistics. The materials suggested in this resource list include curricula, pamphlets, brochures, videos, and resources for leaders. Each entry specifies the reading level and has a short annotation. A list of publishers, with addresses, and a list of new publications from the Center for Population Options are included. Some titles are available in Spanish. (LL)
