Book Description

A comprehensive guide to creating, implementing, and evaluating culturally competent HIV prevention programs.

Recent literature on effective HIV/AIDS prevention programs underscores the importance of cultural sensitivity and cultural competence in the delivery of services and care. Successful prevention interventions must be tailored for their target populations. Yet many HIV/AIDS prevention professionals struggle to meet the specific needs of their communities.

Tools for Building Culturally Competent HIV Prevention Programs contains a variety of well-informed, evidence-based approaches to HIV prevention programs. It offers all the tools practitioners need to launch an effective prevention program: from identifying program goals and objectives, to developing program models, to recruiting and retaining staff, and finally to conducting evaluations and reporting results. All material is filtered through a cultural perspective and methods are tailored to specific racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.

    Additional resources are included to assist in the preparation and development of your prevention program, such as:

  • Federal standards and guidelines for culturally competent health care and social service provision
  • True-life case studies that show how other HIV prevention programs succeeded
  • Checklists, worksheets and templates to create, monitor, and manage your program
  • The CD includes:

  • Customizable checklists and worksheets that you can use in your program
  • A demonstration of the Virtual Program Evaluation Consultant (VPEC) software program, a program evaluation service offered by Sociometrics Corporation. Purchasers of this book will get a three-month license to VPEC free
  • Use the companion volume, The Complete HIV/AIDS Teaching Kit (with CD-ROM, in your prevention program to assist you in providing an overview of the incidence, prevalence, prevention, and treatment of HIV/AIDS to all your students, patients, or clients.

About the Author

Julie Solomon, PhD, serves as a Senior Research Associate and the Director of Training Support at Sociometrics Corporation. As a Senior Research Associate, she has directed R&D, evaluation, and consulting projects in diverse behavioral health areas, including HIV, STI, and teen pregnancy prevention; substance abuse prevention; violence prevention; and clinician-patient communication in the context of (patient) communication disorders. These projects have been funded by a variety of public and private entities, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, Johnson & Johnson Corporate Contributions, the California Healthy Kids Resource Center, and the Santa Clara County (California) Public Health Department.

As Director of Training Support at Sociometrics, Dr. Solomon develops and delivers workshops on program planning and evaluation for diverse audiences, principally practitioners in the sexual and reproductive health fields. Dr. Solomon joined Sociometrics in 1999 after completing a PhD in linguistics at Stanford University. While in graduate school, she taught in several departments and also worked for ETR Associates, the American Institutes for Research (AIR), and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Research Institute on projects addressing sexual behavior and HIV risk among Latino youth and adults in California. A common thread that runs through much of Dr. Solomon's work is a desire to empower health and social service providers to carry out appropriate cultural adaptation and successful replication of empirically validated prevention programs. She has recently published on these topics through the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and in the journal Evaluation and the Health Professions.

She is a chapter author of two Springer titles, TO GRANDMOTHERS HOUSE WE GO AND STAY (2000), and SERVING MENTALLY ILL OFFENDERS (2002).



Josefina J. Card, PhD, is Founder, President, and CEO of Sociometrics Corporation, an applied social science research and development (R&D) company based in Los Altos, CA. Dr. Card is a nationally recognized social scientist and an expert in the establishment and operation of research-based social science resources, products and services. She has served as Principal Investigator of over 70 research-to- practice R&D projects, most of them funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Card has also devoted a significant portion of her career to facilitating the development and scientific evaluation of social intervention programs. She has served as a member of many federal advisory committees, including the NIH (National Institutes of Health) Study Section for Social Sciences and Population, the NICHD (National Institute on Child Health and Human Development) Population Research Committee, and the NICHD Advisory Council.

Currently Dr. Card, a native of the Philippines, is working with Pathways Philippines and with the Ayala Foundation USA to raise funds to allow outstanding graduates of Philippine public high schools to go to college.
