JAIDS Supplement: Role Health Communication Plays in HIV Prevention and Care

1

JAIDS Health Communication supplementThe Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes (JAIDS) has published a special supplement sponsored by the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative devoted to health communication and its role in and impact on HIV prevention and care.

This is an important collection of Open Access articles; a first of its kind in the field of health communication as several of the articles in the compilation provide evidence of health communication’s impact on HIV prevention.

Thirteen articles explore how the biomedical community can benefit from a more effective integration of evidence-based health communication in HIV prevention and care programs. Strategic health communication programs are essential when tackling the human behaviors so closely linked to the success of biomedical interventions, such as voluntary medical male circumcision, HIV counseling and testing, and treatment compliance.
