HIV Prevention and Intervention in the School Setting



The purpose of this chapter is to discuss HIV prevention and intervention in the school setting. We focus not only on the impact of HIV on students infected with or affected by the disease but also on the importance of developmentally appropriate and comprehensive school-based HIV education. Using a three-tiered model, we describe school-related HIV issues within the following contexts: primary prevention, secondary prevention, and tertiary prevention.
