This change necessitates much more professional expertise, updated knowledge, critical thinking and involvement in developing effective AIDS literacy programs.

This paper outlines strategies for effective collaboration in the context of AIDS literacy promotion efforts. It identifies a number of obstacles in the process of empowering the community and suitable measures essential for success.
