Educational Workshops

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are 56,000 new HIV infections each year in the U.S. and that this rate of infection has been steady for the past decade. Why so many new infections when we know so much about how infections occur? It may be that people aren't learning the facts, or don't believe that they are at risk, or maybe they are unable or unwilling to take the necessary precautions. Many people are dangerously ignorant about the virus, with surveys around the world showing alarmingly low levels of awareness and understanding about HIV amongst many groups. Education can help to overcome such ignorance, and thereby prevent new HIV infections from occurring and reduce the stigma often associated with this disease.

Missoula AIDS Council offers educational workshops for all audiences as a service to our community.  Workshops are specifically tailored and available for diverse audiences including: schools, substance abuse treatment programs, detention centers, youth homes, business, service groups and social service agencies.

HIV 101

HIV 101 workshops offer a basic overview of HIV/AIDS including routes of transmission, basic biology, history, social implications and prevention. This educational presentation can vary in length from 40 to 90 minutes and typically includes a powerpoint slideshow.

Just So U Know

Just So U Know is a highly interactive curriculum that will have participants involved and moving around. Workshops focus on a review of basic HIV/AIDS information with an emphasis on prevention, identifying the role of values, and sexual negotiation skills. This is not an abstinence-only workshop, but it does cover abstinence. Just So You Know was originally designed specifically for high school and university students, but may be altered for other audiences seeking a more interactive approach to HIV/AIDS education.

If you would like to schedule a workshop for your group or as an individual please contact us.
