HIV/AIDS: Protecting Your Clients and Yourself for Barbers, 2nd edition - For Initial Licensure


About the Course
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) are commonly recognized terms. However, while many have heard of these terms, the stigmatization of HIV-positive individuals paired with commonly believed myths and misconceptions surrounding the HIV/AIDS epidemic can influence behaviors when working with HIV positive persons. Barbers must be comfortable working around all types of people, and misinformation can interfere with their ability to provide quality, non-discriminatory services to all clients.
