Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the University of Washington-Seattle, California State University, Long Beach, and the Indiana University School of Medicine are collaborating with a Seattle-based computer consulting business to develop a client-centered CD-ROM to encourage risk-reduction behaviors and testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS Alert reports. The product is designed to be an effective replacement for face-to-face counseling at health clinics and other medical settings with limited staff. Researchers are building the program so it is appropriate for various at-risk populations and age groups. Users will be able to customize the program by adding phone numbers for local resources. Developers hope to be able to test the CD-ROM before the end of next year.
