Abstract

Because AIDS will probably remain a significant force, schools must revamp inadequate HIV prevention programs. Schools should focus on HIV risk behaviors, help students make more realistic risk estimates, emphasize skill development relevant to HIV-risk situations, use data on normative peer behavior, devote more classroom time to HIV education, and provide adequate staff training.
