<p>Globally, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immunodeficiency diseases (AIDS) and sexual transmitted diseases (STDs) are pressing issues that need evidenced-based interventions.? Data show that African-American adolescents are a higher rate than any other ethnic group. To address this public health problem, it is imperative to incorporate strategies for adolescent HIV/STD education prevention programs. The purpose of this project was to examine the relationship between a HIV education intervention program and participation in HIV and STD screening with 132 African American students in grades 9 through 12 at an urban high school. The project employed quantitative data from the Coordinated School Services (CSS) pre-test and post-test that adhered to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Data supported the implementation and maintenance of the HIV STD education programs.</p>
