Since 2014, Broward County Public Schools (FL) has been part of a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The objective of the agreement is to decrease the risks taken by students in regards to sexual activity. Through data gathered from students in surveys from 2014 and 2016 there have been significant improvements in students knowledge about HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections. In addition, sexual activity rates have lowered. Students are more readily informed about the agencies in the county who provide services related to sexual health, mental health, domestic and family relationships. Our work provides opportunities for students to access HIV and STI health screenings at their schools on a regular basis. We provide services to whole school student, staff and parent populations. We work even more specifically with ASMM, Adolescent Sexual Minority Males. Through data gathered by CDC, this particular group has the highest incidence of new HIV and STI infections.
