This report discusses the structural barriers in correctional facilities when dealing with HIV and inmates. It states that four times as many people in prison have HIV than in the general population, which is a concern for everyone, not just those in prison.
This report is essentially a blueprint on how the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention will achieve its goals to eradicate the diseases they focus on. The report discusses goals, which align with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, to reduce incidence, health disparities, morbidity, and mortality.

This STD communications toolkit was developed by NPHIC and staff from CDC's Division of STD Prevention. Its purpose is to provide materials and resources that will help communications staff and STD program managers in state and local health departments communicate effectively about STDs. The materials are divided into two broad categories: information for the general public and information for providers. The toolkit was created following key informant interviews with public information officers and STD program staff in seven state and two city health departments.
