This book was developed by the American Association for World Health to provide HIV/AIDS awareness and education information and to assist anyone who wishes to observe World AIDS Day. Some materials, such as the Fact Sheets, are designed to be photocopied for use in education and awareness programs. Other materials, such as the planning and activities sections, are primarily written for community leaders, whose leadership and local programs play a crucial role in delivering vital messages of hope and prevention that must be heard if we are to defeat the global epidemic of HIV/AIDS.
For HIV/AIDS information for the visually-impaired, call the CDC National Prevention Information Network (800-458-5231) for a Braille brochure entitled "Understanding AIDS," which provides basic information on HIV transmission and prevention. You can also contact Horizons for the Blind (847-836-1400), an organization that transcribes standard print HIV/AIDS-related reading materials into Braille. For other special language needs, see the Resources section near the back of this book.
