Communication for HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care, and Support: Contexts for Individual and Social Change, Supplement Issue of the Journal of Health Communication, Volume 5, Washington 2000.

This supplement issue contains ten articles dealing with different aspects of communication for HIV/AIDS. It includes two general articles, one critically assessing the theories and models used in communication for HIV/AIDS, the other featuring social and economic factors that are playing an important role in a behavioural and societal approach to communication for HIV/AIDS. An article reviews the progress and prospects of HIV/AIDS communication campaigns, while another looks at the potential impact of Internet use on the ability of HIV-positive individuals to deal with their illness. A couple of articles summarise lessons learned from the field, one especially dealing with HIV/AIDS and gender in Africa, while two others give insights in promising communication interventions, namely peer promotion (Ghana), and entertainment-education (Tanzania).

Communications Programming for HIV/AIDS: An Annotated Bibliography, UNAIDS, Geneva 1999

This document contains 667 references and has been organised according to recent findings of the application of current communication frameworks to HIV/AIDS communication. The first section of this annotated bibliography contains references related to the different theoretical concepts widely utilised in HIV/AIDS communication, and examples of their application in different settings. The second section covers examples and reports of HIV/AIDS communication campaigns. It provides references dealing with traditional mass media campaigns, multimedia campaigns, and the role of interpersonal and small-group communication in media campaigns, as well as media advocacy and entertainment-education. The third section of this document contains references on community response to HIV/AIDS. Culture and context occupy the fourth section, which includes citations that might help users identify key references associated with some of the issues identified as highly relevant to future HIV/AIDS communication, such as language and different ways of knowing and communicating in varied contexts.
