The prevalence of HIV/AIDS among adolescents and young adults indicates a great need to reduce sexual risk behaviors among American youth. This chapter discusses evidence-based HIV prevention programs for schools. Most of the effective HIV prevention curricula include educational and skill-building components. Fisher et al's Information—Motivation—Behavioral Skills curriculum is one approach that has resulted in increased condom-use and more positive attitudes about HIV prevention behaviors when administered to teens in a school setting.

Keywords:   HIV prevention, AIDS prevention, school-based intervention, Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills curriculum
