A progressive journal about HIV/AIDS, the Journal of HIV/AIDS Prevention & Education for Adolescents & Children focuses on the impact and implications of the epidemic on children and adolescents and rightfully calls attention to the fact that throughout the world HIV/AIDS reaches the most unlikely, unsuspecting, and most vulnerable members of societies. Providing you with a multicultural, multidisciplinary, holistic approach to the topic of children and AIDS, this journal addresses AIDS as a public health issue, bringing public and professional attention to AIDS and children within the context of social justice and the need for social change. By combining information based on research, theory development, public policy, and professional practice with contributions from the personal experiences of caregivers, parents, and children, JHAPE balances the professional, academic, and scholarly side of HIV/AIDS with the human side of the HIV/AIDS experience. The journal is multidisciplinary, dealing with a wide range of subjects from education, public health, sexual behavior, substance abuse, and child welfare. Specific topics you learn about include: HIV/AIDS prevention curriculum in schools, testing children for HIV, problems and issues faced by educators with HIV-positive and HIV-negative children in the same classroom, HIV/AIDS education and prevention programs for children and youth in rural communities; for lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth; for American Indian, Asian, Black, and Latino youth; and for youth of other diverse racial and ethnic groups, education and prevention programs targeting children and youth who have dropped out of school; who abuse alcohol and other drugs; who are sexually active; or who have been neglected or sexually, physically, or mentally abused, education and prevention for children who are in foster care and for homeless and runaway youth. The Journal of HIV/AIDS Prevention & Education for Adolescents & Children is committed to providing you with a humanistic, non-judgmental, and non-moralistic view of the effects of HIV/AIDS on children and youth by publicizing this philosophy and welcoming articles that deal with these themes. You will find the journal's holistic approach a welcome departure from the usually fragmented approach to complex societal problems related to children. This approach also brings colleagues with disparate views together to allow networking across disciplinary lines--resulting in a wide range of information for practitioners, researchers, public policy analysts, community organizers, and administrators who often work in isolation from each other.
