Strategies to identify and influence persons at increased risk for infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) require outreach to provide prevention messages directly to persons at risk, assist them to obtain prevention services, and encourage them to reduce risks. Street outreach programs complement CDC's information and education campaign "America Responds to AIDS" by providing persons with specific risk-reduction messages and materials. This report describes efforts to implement such approaches in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and presents preliminary results regarding the prevalence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis infections among female street prostitutes in that community.
