Evaluation of the HIV/AIDS Education Program/Including Condom Availability, 1990-1992. OREA Report.
Simkin, Linda; And Others
The number of adolescents with AIDS and the number of young adults diagnosed with AIDS who were infected with HIV during adolescence continues to grow at alarming rates. This report evaluates a program that included staff development, mandated HIV/AIDS education for children in kindergarten through grade 12, and a peer leadership component that was designed to increase students' knowledge of HIV/AIDS issues. The evaluation appears in seven chapters. Chapter 1 provides an introduction and overview of the program. Chapters 2 and 3 describe program orientation, different levels of training, recruitment, and the accomplishments of the HIV/AIDS education teams, while chapter 4 addresses issues affecting mandated HIV/AIDS instruction and related educational efforts in high schools. Chapter 5 focuses on the first year of condom availability during the two phases of the program, and chapter 6 covers community program involvement and resource needs. The peer education program and Be Active in Self Education (BASE) grants are discussed in chapter 7. Evaluators offer recommendations at the end of each chapter. Also included are a glossary and appendices cataloging schools by implementation phase, program implementation guidelines, a self-assessment instrument, curriculum descriptions, and a list of participating community-based organizations.
