SAT's communications and publications have two key purposes:
In implementing communications and publications, SAT is focusing on:

Many of SAT publications are available in both English and Portuguese. A compilation of our publications are also available on CD-ROM.
There are four main categories of SAT publications: lesson-sharing and advocacy, skills training, SAT information, and additional resources.
Lesson-sharing and advocacy. This includes:
Community Responses - This series is for lesson sharing and is targeted at community groups and, to a lesser extent, policy makers. Each edition takes a practical programming challenge, describes how a community responded, and extracts key lessons for sharing with others
SHARE series - SHARE stands for Shaping HIV and AIDS Responses. This series aims to document practical experiences, identify lessons learned, and advocate effective strategies and policies. It seeks to inspire, inform, and improve the evolving community response to HIV and AIDS in southern Africa
SPLASH papers - SPLASH stands for Strategies, Policy and Lessons on AIDS and HIV. These brief papers highlight SAT's perspective on a key issue, based on our practical experience and ethical/philosophical viewpoint and/or research findings. They are meant to inform and motivate policy makers and SAT peers and to strengthen the association of SAT with certain stances or approaches
Skills training. This includes:
Counseling Guidelines - This is a well-established series providing community volunteers and CBO/NGO staff with practical guidance about diverse counseling situations and client needs
Training and Practice Manuals - SAT training manuals support School Without Walls training in key skills development areas, such as mainstreaming gender. Practice manuals document SAT's own systems and procedures for sharing with others.
