AIDS Prevention provides HIV/AIDS prevention through health education and training, risk reduction promotion, and resource distribution to service providers and people at risk. This is accomplished through technical assistance consultation, conferences and workshops, media campaigns, community-based organizations and community planning groups, youth peer education, HIV counseling and testing at AIDS Prevention Centers, and a statewide AIDS hotline.
The STD Program monitors disease morbidity in both the public and private sectors on Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Eight disease investigators located throughout the state perform field epidemiology on all Early Syphilis, HIV, and Acute Hepatitis B infections as well as Chlamydia and Gonorrhea when feasible. The central program staff answers all hotline calls and provides educational resources for presentations as well as condom and literature distribution.
