This timely program reviews the latest new information on HIV, explains precautionary measures that help to lower the risks of HIV infection and also answers other frequently asked questions about this most lethal of STDs. The FDA recently approved a rapid HIV diagnostic test kit that provides extremely accurate results in minutes. Program explains the new test to teens and provides crucial details on what it means if the test comes back positive. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated that one-fourth of the approximately 900,000 HIV-infected people in the U.S. are not aware that they are infected. Since the progression of the disease-—and the risk of spreading it to others—-is greatly dependent upon swift response and treatment, there is a great need for young people to get information about their HIV status as quickly as possible. The Teacher's Resource Book includes activities to help students consider whether their own behaviors are putting them at risk of infection, and provides fact sheets to remind students of the dangers of this deadly virus.
