STD Communications Database

After looking at the Focus Groups on STD Communications, I checked out the STD Communications Database. This is a CDC website that contains a searchable database of articles and monographs that can assist health professionals in talking to clients and communities about STDs more effectively. The user can search the database in terms based on behaviors, barriers, knowledge and awareness, interventions, communication channels, diseases, and audience.

A search using "Texas" and "condom distribution" brought back 34 articles. The results included abstracts, summary results, and information about the quality of the article.

The site also includes useful information about design principles, so that the user can design more effective educational materials.
