IHS Announces Tribal HIV/STD Training Kit and Guide
To help stop the spread of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), the Indian Health Service (IHS) supported the development of a Tribal HIV/STD Training Kit and Policy Guide. The Training Kit gives Tribes and tribal organizations information on how to work with tribal council members, school boards, health directors, and other partnering programs on ways to prevent the transmission of HIV and STDs.
The training kit contains facts about sexual health, tools for assessing community readiness to implement a sexual health program, information to guide policy development, case studies of effective models for change, and additional resources to strengthen community sexual health activities and policies. The Training Kit can be downloaded from the HIV/AIDS Community Resources section.
