This handbook has been developed to support health educators, community workers, teachers and parents in their efforts to protect the African American people from the scrouge of HIV/AIDS. The primary target of the hand book are teenagers/youth and other African American persons who are the less fortunate components of our society, because it is this population that is most susceptible to this scourge. However suggestions included here in apply virtually to all populations especially culturally different people such as Hispanic etc. Prevention of HIV/AIDS among adults helps to maintain an enlightened parent population prevents AIDS transmitted from the older to the younger generation as in some communities, the elder people are involved in sexual relationships with young adolescents.

The authors commend organizations and individuals such as Bill and Melinda Gates, Hon’ble U.S.President Barack Obama and former US president they funded billions of dollars to offer treatment of HIV/AIDS infected people and for education of people most susceptible to HIV infection.
