Prevention


One of the service areas the Four As offers is HIV prevention and education in the elimination of the transmission of HIV and its stigma. HIV prevention is achieved through a multidisciplinary approach that includes HIV education presentations, rapid HIV testing, statewide condom distribution, the operation of a syringe exchange, and providing the HIV/AIDS Helpline. By utilizing a multidisciplinary approach to HIV prevention, the Four As is able to offer programs that are culturally sensitive, reach various age groups and target high risk populations. Research shows that by instituting this approach, it has a direct impact on the number of new HIV cases annually.
