Prevention Is Care. Screen for risky behavior. Prescribe healthy behavior.

To date, HIV prevention has largely focused on persons who are not infected with HIV, to help them avoid becoming infected. In order to further reduce HIV transmission, an increased emphasis must be placed on preventing transmission by HIV-infected persons. Research shows that persons living with HIV often adopt healthy behaviors after their initial diagnosis. However, many revert back to risky behaviors after a period of time, putting their health and the health of others at risk.
Ongoing, brief prevention counseling is a cost-effective measure that can be incorporated into routine care for individuals living with HIV. Prevention IS Care therefore includes tools for medical care providers to use on a daily basis with those patients who are living with HIV. Informational posters and patient education brochures develop patients' knowledge about HIV, facilitate open dialogue and information exchange, and strengthen patients' ability to make healthy choices. And continuing education opportunities are included for medical care providers to update and add depth to their knowledge and skills.
