HIV/AIDS Prevention Program Archive

The HIV/AIDS Prevention Program Archive, funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is a collection of 22 effective prevention program replication kits designed to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS. Risk behaviors addressed include sexual risk behavior, drug injection use behaviors, STD/HIV infection rates, prenatal and perinatal transmission risk behaviors, and several programs are designed for use with the HIV-positive population. 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.

All replication kits are designed to be comprehensive, user-friendly and visually appealing, and include a User's Guide, an Evaluation Assistance Kit, the original evaluation instrument (if available) and process evaluation instrument, as well as original program materials including facilitator's manuals, curriculum guides, games and masters for handouts. The complete sample program Real Men Are Safe is provided below.

Note: some materials used in the original intervention cannot be digitized, but are available for purchase from Sociometrics.
