Description - Preventing AIDS by R. Dennis Shelby

This book is designed to help frontline prevention organisations answer two questions that are of utmost importance. First, how effective can their services be; and secondly, how can their services be improved? The absence of rigorous evaluation is a barrier to stable funding and efficient implementation of policies for numerous community organisations, and the strategies contained in Preventing AIDS should be an essential resource for such organisations in overcoming these barriers. The book examines six unique efforts to prevent the spread of AIDS among high-risk populations such as prostitutes, injection drug users, impoverished pregnant women, migrant workers, transgendered persons and prison inmates. The title explores the difficult but important cooperative efforts between community organisations who do frontline prevention work and university scientists who evaluate the effectiveness of that work. The text is augmented by tables and figures, making important data easy to access and understand.
