AMA Given Contract to Develop Physicians' HIV Prevention Kit

A physician HIV prevention kit to assist primary care physicians in changing behavior techniques among their patients is to be developed by the American Medical Association (AMA) under a $75,000 grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

According to CDC, the kit and materials "will encompass a wide range of information and behavior change support for patients." It is to include information on behavioral techniques for the sexually active and for the abstinent, brochures, a condom demonstration item, and a behavior change diary.

The one-year project, expected to begin September 30, 1994, is the result of an unsolicited proposal by the AMA and will be conducted through a yet-to-be selected state medical society. The demonstration is to train 100 to 200 primary care physicians in the use of the kit.

Information on the project is available from Elizabeth M. Taylor, grants management officer, Grants Management Branch, CDC, 255 East Paces Ferry Road N.E., Room 305, Mailstop E-16, Atlanta, GA 30305; (404) 842-6640. Refer to Announcement No. 399.
