This article represents a follow-up report on the further evolution of AIDS prevention education work at the Hispanic Health Council (HHC), a community-based health research, service, and advocacy organization, and on the changing role of anthropology in the AIDS work of the HHC. The development of community-based AIDS programs have attracted the interest of public health AIDS researchers because of recognition that to be effective AIDS prevention must be sensitive to the cultures of targeted populations.
