  2. Experimental evaluation of school-based HIV programs in sub-Saharan Africa

    School-based adolescent health education programs represent a durable strategy in reducing the spread of HIV because they can leverage pre-existing social and organizational structures to reach large fractions of students at critical life stages. Many evaluations of school-based HIV programs draw on multilevel study designs that assign schools to treatment conditions or assign students to treatment conditions within blocks defined by school membership. …

    HIV and AIDS is an epidemic that has remained a serious health concern across the globe for more than a quarter of a century since it was first diagnosed in 1981. This is in spite of a myriad of health education and prevention programs that have been developed and are in use.

  7. Kenyan National Guidelines on Nutrition and HIV/AIDS

    People infected with HIV are at greater risk of malnutrition than those who are not infected. HIV and opportunistic infections interfere with the desire and ability to eat thus reducing dietary intake; causing mal-absorption of nutrients; increasing energy demand thus increasing nutrient requirements; and causing abnormal use of protein. Limited food security and inadequate knowledge of good nutrition in regions of Kenya where HIV is prevalent, makes the situation worse. …

    This National Reproductive Health Policy aims to guide planning, standardisation, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of reproductive health (RH) services provided by the Government, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), faith based organisations (FBOs), community based organizations (CBOs), private-for profit sectors, and communities in Kenya. …

  9. HIV/AIDS knowledge and behaviour: have information campaigns reduced HIV infection? The case of Kenya

    AIDS continues to have a devastating effect on developing countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. The lack of a proven effective vaccine to stop HIV transmission has led to much of public policy putting an emphasis on information campaigns in order to reduce HIV-prevalence. In this paper we examine the impact of HIV/AIDS-knowledge from two sides. First, we examine to what extent the campaigns have been successful at inducing the expected behavioural change with regards to HIV-related attitudes. Second, we examine the impact of HIV/AIDS knowledge on HIV status. …

  10. National reproductive health and HIV and AIDS integration strategy

    The integration of reproductive health (RH) and HIV and AIDS involves restructuring and reorienting health systems to ensure the delivery of HIV and AIDS services within the same sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services or delivery of SRH services within HIV and AIDS services, during the same hours. This strategy aims to provide a coherent framework to ensure improved coordination and collaboration among key agencies and organisations offering integrated RH and HIV and AIDS services. …

The information gathered will feed into AGEI programmes and HIV/AIDS projects in several sectors, particularly those concerned with improving and strengthening AIDS education in Kenyan schools. The study was conducted in two districts: Garissa in Kenya's remote North Eastern Province, and the capital city Nairobi. …
