This handbook, designed by AIDSCAP's Behavior Change Communication (BCC) unit, is intended to help field-level planners and implementors conduct simple, effective pretests of BCC materials for HIV/AIDS prevention. This handbook will help you:

  • Understand what pretesting is and why it is important.
  • Learn different methods of pretesting.
  • Determine whether materials are easily readable.
  • Design and conduct simple, effective testing surveys.
  • Analyze and use pretest information to improve materials.

The handbook does not cover specific issues such as target group identification, project design, project evaluation and development of BCC material.
