Presenting state-of-the-art research and information, AIDS Education and Prevention is a vital addition to the library collections of medical schools, hospitals, and other institutions and organizations with HIV/AIDS research programs. The journal integrates public health, psychosocial, sociocultural, and public policy perspectives on issues of key concern nationally and globally.

Included are:

“HIV prevention is as complex as the myriad social, cultural, economic, and political realities interwoven in the lives of those at risk of infection or living with HIV. AIDS Education and Prevention goes beyond any one school of thought or methodology, providing a sound foothold in data, analysis, and critical thought that can support our collective next steps in confronting the epidemic.”

—Julie Davids, Codirector, Community HIV/AIDS Mobilization Project (CHAMP), Cranston, Rhode Island

“This journal is an excellent source of high-quality, cutting-edge research. AIDS Education and Prevention publishes innovative and significant data, making it a comprehensive resource that I turn to when seeking the current state of knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS epidemiology, behavioral science, and prevention.”

—Matthew J. Mimiaga, ScD, MPH, The Fenway Institute, Boston, and Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

“This outstanding journal continues to be a forum devoted to the publication of original contributions that highlight existing and theoretical models of AIDS education and prevention, including their development, implementation, and evaluation....This is a highly recommended publication for all health science and academic research libraries.”

AIDS Book Review Journal

“An important resource and an effective tool.”

—Richard Keeling, MD, Director of University Health Services, University of Wisconsin Madison

“The consideration of everything from the latest medical reports to strategies and programs on education makes this a valuable weapon in the war against AIDS.”
