Tool to Assess the Characteristics of Effective Sex and STD/HIV Education Programs

Tool to Assess the Characteristics of Effective Sex and STD/HIV Education Programs (TAC) is a 50-page resource, ideal for program planners, policy makers, district administrators, youth-serving organizations, health teachers and health educators.

TAC utilizes an organized set of questions designed to help practitioners assess whether curriculum-based programs have incorporated the common characteristics of effective sex and HIV education programs. The characteristics of effective programs were identified through a research study completed in 2006 and re-released in 2014 with updated resources.

Knowing which curriculum-based programs have incorporated the common characteristics of effective programs and which have not can help practitioners select, adapt, develop and implement more effective pregnancy, STD and HIV prevention programs in their communities.
