Web site collects HIV/AIDS prevention videos

Eric Krock, Executive Director of AIDSvideos.org, has sent us a notice that this organization has been

busy creating a free basic HIV/AIDS video curriculum in English. On the web site, you can already see:
- Introduction to HIV and AIDS: What You Need to Know (17 min.)
- Top Ten Myths About HIV/AIDS (9 min.)
- Crystal Methamphetamine and HIV: The Connection (7 min.)

Krock says that the curriculum will be rounded out with a video on prevention for positives and one on sterilizing drug works in the near future. The next phase of the organization's work includes getting this basic "doctor-approved" curriculum translated and filmed in "every language in the world."

In the meantime, the site provides links to videos already available in other languages and English from several other organizations, including PBS, faith-based organizations, and others.

The videos are free for viewing online or for downloading. The site takes a neutral point of view, but acknowledges that some of the video sources to which it links may not. This looks like a good resource for prevention workers and for individuals seeking prevention information.
