ABC Approach to Preventing the Sexual Transmission HIV | This booklet was published in 2006 and was an initiative of the HIV Prevention and Health Behavior Working Group of CCIH. The book was written by Edward C. Green, PhD and Allison Herling, MSPH and was produced through a collaborative effort between CCIH and Medical Service Corporation International (MSCI). The ABC Approach to preventing HIV transmission consists of behaviors that greatly reduce the risk of sexual transmission, primarily Abstinence, Be Faithful, and the use of Condoms. While much of the data is older than 10 years, it is still a valuable resource and encouragement for behavior change to reduce the transmission of HIV.
