Youth, AIDS, and HIV: Resources for Education and Policymakers 1995-96. Bulletin No. 96049. Revised: Third Printing.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
The most important message for young people to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is that refraining from sexual intercourse and alcohol and other drug use is the most effective prevention strategy. Some young people, however, may be unwilling to abstain from sexual activity and/or alcohol and other drug use. Therefore, the annotated resources in this document include selected entries on the national, state, and local levels that provide messages related to risk reduction. This resource document was designed to provide information about technical assistance and education materials that can guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of AIDS education. The resource directory containing over 40 entries offer information about programs whose goals are to prevent the spread of HIV and other STDs among school-aged youth in Wisconsin. An annotated resource list provides nearly 100 citations for materials including audiovisuals, computer disks, books, journals, reports, articles, curricula, pamphlets, magazines and posters for AIDS education and HIV prevention. This document attempts to provide the contacts and the foundation needed for families, communities and schools to fight the spread of AIDS, HIV, and other STDs. (JBJ)
