Description: 
The Southern and Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ) is a network of 15 Ministries of Education: Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania (Mainland), Tanzania (Zanzibar), Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. SACMEQ's main mission is to undertake integrated research and training activities that: (a) provide educational planners with the technical skills required to monitor and evaluate the quality of their own education systems, and (b) generate information that can be used by decision-makers to plan and improve the quality of education. The SACMEQ Consortium has undertaken three large-scale cross-national studies of the quality of education in Southern and Eastern Africa: the SACMEQ I Project (1995-1999), the SACMEQ II Project (2000-2004), and the SACMEQ III project (2007-2011). The SACMEQ III Project included an additional data collection concerned with a detailed assessment of pupil and teacher knowledge about HIV and AIDS. This policy brief presents the results of pupil and teacher knowledge about HIV and AIDS in Seychelles.
