For World AIDS Day on Friday, December 1st, share educational materials in multiple languages about HIV/AIDS prevention, testing, treatment, and living with the condition. Health professionals can find multilingual HIV/AIDS patient materials on HealthReach, a website created by the National Library of Medicine that offers reliable health information in many languages and formats. Share the eight-part HIV/AIDS 101 training series, including handouts, video, and audio in four languages (English, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish).
Explore HIV/AIDS patient material like:
- What is HIV? – HIV/AIDS 101 – This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS.
- I have HIV. Does that mean I have AIDS? – HIV/AIDS 101 – This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about the difference between human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which is the late stage of HIV infection.
- Find Support – Newly diagnosed with HIV – This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people who are newly diagnosed with HIV about ways to find support through emotional and physical issues.
- What does a positive HIV test result mean? – HIV testing – This one-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about what happens if an HIV test result is positive.
