HIV/AIDS (HAPPA)

The HIV/AIDS Prevention Program Archive (HAPPA), funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is a collection of effective prevention program replication kits designed to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS. This resource is designed to assist prevention practitioners by: (1) identifying and facilitating access to effective HIV/AIDS adult prevention programs, and (2) encouraging rigorous reevaluation of these programs. The programs were selected by a national advisory panel of leading scientists in the field of HIV/AIDS prevention. Note: 21 additional HIV/AIDS prevention programs for adolescents are listed under teen pregnancy.
