Two New HIV Prevention Knowledge Base Topics

By Daniel C | 19 Mar, 2012

The HIV Prevention Knowledge Base is a collection of research and tools to help you find what works in prevention. This up-to-date collection of resources will help you identify and adapt evidence-based prevention strategies for your program. I have linked to two new topics below:

**Comprehensive Sexuality Education**

Young people in many countries have unprotected sexual intercourse with one or more partners, potentially exposing themselves to HIV, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), or unintentional pregnancy. Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) programs work to delay initiation of sex, reduce the number of sexual partners, and increase the use of condoms and other forms of contraception.

**HTC for Prevention**

As a stand-alone intervention, HIV testing and counseling (HTC) contributes to prevention of HIV transmission by identifying and informing individuals, partners and couples, and families of their HIV status and counseling them to develop appropriate sexual, injection, or other risk-reduction measures. These measures differ according to the serostatus of the individual or of couples, be they seroconcordant (both partners test either HIV-positive or HIV-negative) or serodiscordant (one partner tests HIV-positive and the other tests HIV-negative).
