Abstract : OTA first addressed the question, How Effective Is AIDS Education? (91) in 1988. At that time, we concluded that "knowledge about the effectiveness of particular programs and of specific elements of programs has been slow to accumulate. " The Sub-committee on Health and the Environment of the House of Representatives Committee on Commerce asked OTA to take a fresh look at the question, and this background paper is the result. In 1995, there still is a need for additional research and for development and use of more carefully-refined research methods.
