HIV Prevention Education History

History of HIV Prevention Education in Maryland Schools

State regulations on health education have evolved over a period of time. The first portion of the regulation that was developed involved the teaching of family life education. This became effective on July 1, 1970. Next came the regulation regarding HIV/AIDS prevention education. This began as an emergency regulation on October 6, 1987 and was adopted as a final regulation on May 2, 1988. Finally, when the regulation was put forward on comprehensive health education instruction, all three sections were compiled under the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR), Title 13A. State Board of Education, Subtitle 04 Specific Subjects, Chapter 18, Programs in Comprehensive Health Education. The repealing of the separate regulations on the teaching of family life education and HIV/AIDS prevention education and compiling them under COMAR 13A.04.18 occurred on March 27, 1991.
