RCAP has developed, in collaboration with other HIV/STD organizations, two guides that provide direction for HIV/STD prevention in rural communities. Copies of these guides are available below.
Contact RCAP to request printed copies.
RCAP released a new publication at its 2009 national conference, titled Tearing Down Fences: HIV/STD Prevention in Rural American (pp. 118). This guide is the first to focus on HIV/STD prevention in rural communities, and reflects the perspective of the HIV/STD Prevention Work Group as well as other selected rural HIV/STD prevention specialists. FENCES was sponsored by RCAP and five co-sponsors: National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors, National Association of People with AIDS, National Coalition of STD Directors, National Minority AIDS Council, and the National Rural Health Association. The document was developed by senior editor and RCAP co-director, Susan Dreisbach and the RCAP staff.
Hard copies of FENCES are available, for free, by contacting RCAP. An individual copy and multiple copies (e.g. 25, 50, 100 etc.) for professional HIV/STD staff members, in-service training and conferences are available, at no cost. Also, the entire document is available as a PDF file.
