The purpose of the Iowa Department of Education HIV/AIDS Education Program is to conduct activities that establish, strengthen, or expand HIV/STD prevention education and integrate such education into existing comprehensive school health programs. The target population of the goals, objectives, and activities are school-age youth, enrolled or not enrolled in Iowa public and private schools.
HIV/AIDS Teach/Educator Training and Conferences
Every year DE's HIV/AIDS Prevention program sponsors HIV prevention education trainings to educate teachers and other persons working with youth in HIV/STD/pregnancy prevention programs in approved age-appropriate, and research-based curricula both in school and out of school settings.
Every other year, Iowa Department of Education co-sponsors with the Iowa Department of Public Health a statewide HIV/AIDS, STD and Hepatitis Conference.
