To help HIV care providers engage patients in care and transmission prevention, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed a new and comprehensive Prevention IS Care resource kit for providers to use in their practices.
These materials, which are part of CDC’s Act Against AIDS initiative, are based on scientific evidence and can be used to aid patients in understanding the importance of remaining in care, taking ART as prescribed, and practicing safer sexual behaviors to prevent acquisition of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and prevent transmission.
The resource kit includes health care provider educational materials, exam room posters, materials to use during patient discussions, and educational materials for people with HIV.
