    Psychosocial aspects of HIV and AIDS and the evaluation of preventive strategies: report on a WHO meeting, Lisbon, 28 May -1 June 1990
    (World Health Organization, 1990) World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe
    A succinct summary of the main conclusions reached during a meeting convened to assess the psychosocial aspects of HIV infection and AIDS in Europe and to consider the importance of behavioural factors in planning programmes for prevention and control. Discussions and conclusions are summarized under four main headings. These cover the uses of social and behavioural research, the monitoring and evaluation of educational campaigns, the selection of target groups, and measures needed to sustain public interest and counter denial. Key points include the need to focus on risk behaviours rather than risk groups, the reasons why fear-arousing media campaigns may be counter-productive, and the value of using local, as opposed to national, surveys to gather information on risk-related attitudes, behaviours, and practices.
