HIV Prevention Among Drug Users:
A Resource Book for Community Planners & Program Managers

Key Questions for HIV Prevention Planners and Program Managers

The following key questions may help HIV Prevention Community Planning Groups and program managers select or design a more effective prevention program for drug users and their sex partners:

  • What kind of information is available from national, state, and local sources (e.g., health departments, academic institutions) on HIV seroprevalence, surrogate markers, drug use, and risk behaviors among drug users?
  • Did you consider the theoretical basis for the proposed intervention? Which theoretical approaches and factors did you use in selecting or developing the intervention?
  • What are the key features of the intervention selected? Are you able to answer the four basic questions in Exhibit G?
  • Did you consider the general characteristics of effective HIV prevention programs in selecting or developing the intervention? Which did you use in the proposed intervention?
  • Did you look for and find research on the effectiveness of interventions for target populations similar to group(s) you are targeting? If available, did you use the results in selecting or designing a proposed intervention?
