"What is the difference between HIV and AIDS? How do you get it? Can I touch a person with AIDS? Is there a cure for HIV?" Based on national health curriculum standards for middle school plus the latest science, this program arms students with the facts about HIV and AIDS. It presents an age-appropriate review of the basic terms, definitions and biology of the HIV virus plus means of infection, treatment, and protection. The program also sends a clear message that abstinence is the only 100% effective option for avoiding sexual transmission of the HIV virus. It includes a dialogue with middle school students and two HIV positive young people on issues that impact their lives: How should an HIV+ person be treated by others? What are the common misconceptions about how HIV is acquired? What strategies and life skills can teens use to stop the pressures that might expose a young person to HIV?

Your students are sure to notice this attention grabbing video hosted by multi-platinum recording artist Bow Wow, star of the films Like Mike and Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
