The STD/HIV Prevention program strives to increase public awareness about HIV as well as promote the reduction of new cases. These efforts are accomplished through the use of educational resources on HIV, screening and testing, effective condom use and partnering with community organizations that serve at risk populations. Education is also provided to health care professionals to facilitate improvements in clinical practice and information sharing with policymakers.

In addition to community based partners, the STD/HIV Prevention program implements public health strategies in collaboration with other state and local government agencies and departments, including Family Planning, the Department of Education, and the Department of Corrections, to assure that HIV education and prevention strategies are incorporated into existing programs or developed as new foci of implementation.

Education is also provided to help health professionals improve clinical practices, and to inform health policymakers in their decision making.
