Education & Prevention
The San Antonio AIDS Foundation has had a United Way funded HIV prevention education program since 1992. SAAF’s Education Department provides HIV prevention education and can tailor the presentation content and length for any audience. SAAF regularly provides HIV prevention education in many school districts in Bexar and surrounding counties, in correctional facilities, worksites, youth groups, college campuses, etc. Additionally, SAAF provides a court-mandated HIV prevention education class at our site for persons on probation for sex related crimes twice a month; the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month (Call 225-4715) for confirmation and exact times.
Education/Prevention programs include, but are not limited to:
Standard Prevention Program. This presentation gives basic HIV and AIDS information that covers transmission, prevention and testing. A person living with HIV/AIDS gives his/her personal testimony on how HIV/AIDS has affected his/her life. This program is suitable for all ages.
SAAF can also do basic training on other sexually transmitted diseases including Hepatitis C.
In-service training. We can give in-service training to any organization on HIV/AIDS, including Standard Universal Precautions training.
Secondary Prevention Program. SAAF can also provide risk reduction education to persons who are already infected to help them from infecting others or getting infected with other STDs or strains of HIV.
All education programs are designed in such a way that they can be tailored to meet the individual needs of each school or organization. Educational sessions are conducted at no cost to the participants or participant organizations. If you would like to book a program please call the Education Department at (210) 225-4715 and we can discuss your needs.
