California AIDS Clearinghouse (CAC)

CAC provides appropriate and culturally sensitive educational materials free of charge to California local health jurisdictions and other California HIV/AIDS care/prevention programs and agencies within the California Project Area (CPA) conducting structural, individual, and group-level HIV/AIDS risk-reduction interventions.

The CPA includes all of California except the counties of Los Angeles (excluding the City of Long Beach), Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo.  Due to new funding guidelines, if you are in these counties, we must refer you to your respective county.  Note:  Marin and San Mateo counties are covered by San Francisco.

About this Program

All materials in the catalog were made available using federal funding and have been approved as specified in the California Department of Public Health's Document Review Guidelines and recommended by a statewide HIV/AIDS Materials Review Panel as outlined in the "Content of AIDS-Related Written Materials, Pictorials, Audiovisuals, Questionnaires, Survey Instruments, and Educational Sessions in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Assistance Programs' (Interim Revisions, June 1992).

Since HIV is spread primarily through sexual practices or by sharing needles, materials in the CAC catalog may be considered controversial and may not be appropriate for all viewers.

Additional Materials

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has an extensive collection of free materials. For further information, please see the links below:
