Notice to Readers Satellite Broadcast on HIV Prevention

"HIV Prevention Update," a satellite broadcast, will be held Friday, May 8, 1998, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. eastern daylight time. Cosponsors are CDC and the Public Health Training Network. This forum, the third in the "HIV Prevention Update" series, will focus on two topics: surveillance of human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) and prevention among injecting-drug users.

This broadcast is designed for staff and volunteers working in HIV or sexually transmitted disease prevention at health departments, community-based organizations, and community-planning groups, including substance-abuse prevention and treatment, case surveillance, education, and administration.

Experts in HIV/AIDS surveillance will discuss topics such as current trends, community concerns, and upcoming program guidance for expanded case surveillance. Other topics include the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS associated with injecting-drug use in the United States; how preparing and injecting illicit drugs can transmit HIV; medical and behavioral advice for injecting-drug users; and a comprehensive approach to prevent HIV among persons who inject illicit drugs. Viewers are invited to submit questions before, during, or after the program.

Additional information is available through CDC's fax information system, telephone (888) 232-3299 (CDC-FAXX), by requesting document number 130017. Information about registration and a related reading list is available at the World-Wide Web site:
