School-Based Adolescent HIV/STD Prevention Newsletter: Volume 1, Issue 8

Aug 13, 2018 | Kim Rodgers

This newsletter was developed as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Adolescent and School Health’s (DASH) initiative, Expanding Partnerships and Disseminating HIV Prevention Materials to Reduce HIV and other STDs among Adolescents through National Non-Governmental Organizations (PS16-1603). The initiative was created to increase education of key stakeholders on CDC-developed approaches to school-based programs for creating healthier adolescents (10-19 years old) by reducing HIV and STD infection. This final issue focuses on sexual health education

RESOURCES

When armed with accurate information and skills, teens can eliminate or minimize factors that threaten their success in school. In particular, health education provides adolescents with the information and skills they need to avoid many health risks, such as unintended pregnancy as well as most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV. The resources below can be used to support the implementation of school-based sexual health education.

SUCCESS STORIES

This success story is an example of how mandatory health education has contributed to increased training in healthy sexual behaviors and decreased risk for STDs and other social, emotional, and physical risks.

Oakland Unified School District’s Healthy Teen Program
This success story illustrates the accomplishment of the Oakland Unified School District when they implemented a successful campaign to ensure all 6th, 7th, and 9th graders in their district to receive evidence-informed sexual health education.
