             Background
 Requests for California STD/HIV Prevention
  Training Center (STD Overview for Non-
  clinicians in Spanish)

 Bilingual staff experienced in working with
  monolingual Spanish speaking clients gave
  insight into community needs.

 January 2001, work plan was prepared.
Learning Objectives for STD Overview
Goal:         Participants will be able to successfully
              integrate STD risk-reduction into
              teaching or counseling about sexual
              and reproductive health.

Objectives: By the end of the training participants
            will be able to:

    Describe common STDs and their symptoms;
    Summarize STD trends locally and nationally;
    Describe the relationships between HIV and
        other STDs;
(Objectives, continued …)


   Describe which behaviors are high-risk for STD
    transmission;

   Explain how some methods of STD risk
    reduction may differ from that of pregnancy and
    sexually transmitted HIV;
   Describe the negative effects of STD infections
    – especially for women and newborns;

   Provide clear and simple risk-reduction
    messages about STDs to clients/students at
    sexual risk for pregnancy and HIV.
