Annotation: This report addresses the issue of AIDS education and prevention in order to refocus the public's attention on education as the primary mechanism for preventing HIV transmission. Well-designed education programs are seen as having double rewards: lives saved and health care dollars conserved.
Abstract: The report includes a section on the "10 myths about AIDS education." This section substitutes facts and sound policy recommendations for the prevalent misconceptions that hinder AIDS education. The main sections of the report synthesize the current research and experience in AIDS education and serve as a background for a series of recommendations to various public and private sectors of the community. Finally, the report profiles a number of ongoing programs in New York City and New Jersey to show how creatively many people are tackling the AIDS education challenge.
