The Human Rights Campaign ( HRC ) Foundation has released a new comprehensive guide for college administrators, staff and students outlining many of the critical steps higher-educational institutions can take to improve student health and well-being.
The release of the new guide"HIV 101: A Guide to HIV Prevnetion, Treatment, and Care on College and University Campuses"coincided with National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day ( April 10 ).
As a group, college students experience heightened risk factors that can lead to contracting HIV, including engaging in high-risk sexual behavior and experimenting with drugs or alcohol. Nevertheless, according to the CDC, between 2000 and 2014, the percentage of schools in which students are required to receive instruction on HIV prevention decreased from 64 percent to 41 percent.
The guide is at assets2.hrc.org/files/assets/resources/HIV101-2018.pdf .
