Since the time AIDS and HIV infection were first discovered, no medical cures have been developed. It became clear early on that education would be the cornerstone in the fight against AIDS, and that assessment remains true in the 1990s. This book describes how to tailor HIV education and prevention efforts to specific communities, including how to identify those most at risk, what types of interventions are most appropriate to those communities, how to "engage" those most at risk, and the role of participatory evaluation in determining the effectiveness of community education efforts.

.,."The book is designed to challenge the present strategy regarding HIV prevention education and to highlight the work of those who have used special approaches for individuals who have been identified as difficult to reach or at increased risk. The book describes how to tailor HIV education and prevention efforts to specific communities, what types of interventions are most appropriate to those communities, how to engage individuals most at risk, and the role of participatory evaluation in determining the effectiveness of community education efforts. An insightful and useful perspective on HIV prevention efforts."-Choice
