STD Prevention Conference

The CDC has made available audio recordings from this spring’s National STD Prevention Conference. Seeing as how STDs are ALWAYS popular on this site, I thought I’d post this. There’s some interesting stuff coming down the pike, and by the looks of the lineup at the conference, several issues were covered specifically, including new surveillance data.

Probably one of the most intriguing sessions was a presentation titled Forensic AIDS Project: San Francisco’s Two-Model Approach to Condom Distribution in Jails. From the abstract page:

The Forensic AIDS Project (FAP) was the first program in California to distribute condoms in correctional facilities, starting in 1989.  This presentation will provide a history of condom distribution in the San Francisco jails from the mid-1980s to the 21st century.  We will present two different models for condom distribution now available to prisoners in the San Francisco county jails.  We will look at implementation strategies, the role of partnerships and the need for political support when implementing a new and potentially controversial program; and, what to expect from correctional facility staff and prisoner feedback.

Am I the only one who loves this stuff?
