Youth, AIDS, and HIV: Resources for Educators, Policymakers, and Parents, 2001-02.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This document provides information about technical assistance and educational materials that can guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevention education for school-age youth. It also presents resources that can increase the awareness of those infected and affected by acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV. The document offers a resource directory, review criteria for HIV/AIDS instructional resources, and annotated resources (curriculum; audiovisuals; books, journals, reports, and articles; guides; booklets; and other). Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) believe that parents, communities, and schools must promote the message that refraining from sexual intercourse and substance use is the most effective prevention strategy, the annotated resources include entries that provide messages related to risk reduction. Because the DPI promotes an integrated approach to youth risk behavior prevention programming, the list includes resources on issues related to HIV/AIDS. Together, this information provides the contacts and foundation for families, communities, and schools to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS and STI. Two appendixes present the HIV/AIDS review panel 2000-01 and resources organized by audience. (SM)
