Sorry that I am without references
Wikipedia really needed an article on HIV prevention so I made one.
In this article I listed a lot of the ways which people consider using to prevent HIV and linked to the Wikipedia article of each one. I could have pulled references from each Wikipedia article, but what I would really like to find is some list somewhere from a WP:RS which has all of these strategies for prevention organized in a list. I also categorized strategies as either pharmaceutical or social in nature, but this is just an original research point of view. I am fairly sure that someone somewhere must have also categorized things this way, but again, I have no reference which just lists all this as I have organized it.

There are lots of websites which talk about one or a few prevention strategies, but does anyone know any websites which discuss most or all of the ones on this page? Blue Rasberry (talk) 11:39, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
War as a cause of HIV
Even though it is out of the control of community public health centers, prevention of war is a form of HIV prevention because war is a major cause of HIV infection. user:Hamiltonstone removed a paragraph about the US war in Afghanistan and its effect on the spread of HIV. Since about 2005 and because of the war Afghanistan has come to provide about 85% of the world's supply of opium, and since most authorities agree that injection drug use is a route of HIV transmission, I think it is worth mentioning major events which encourage drug using behavior. I provided references. I think this section could be expanded and better explained, but I do not think it is tangential to discussing HIV. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:23, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Orphaned references in Prevention of HIV/AIDS
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Prevention of HIV/AIDS's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 12:54, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
I restored a list of HIV infection prevention strategies. Any of the items in the list could be expanded and until they are I think they have value here in list form. The article does not mention most of the list items otherwise. Blue Rasberry (talk) 23:15, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for the suggestion. This paper is a bit difficult to understand and I am not sure how best to include it. Can you draft what you think should be shared? Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:40, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
discussion about HIV screening topic coverage
Hi, at Talk:Public HIV testing in the United States#Broader topic of screening, there is ongoing discussion of re-focusing that article to be about HIV screening more broadly. This is a follow-on to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Public HIV testing in the United States (which closed "no consensus"). Feel free to comment at the new discussion. --doncram 22:31, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
