  1. National policy on HIV/AIDS for the education sector

    Namibia has been independent for more than ten years, and the nature of the struggle facing our country has changed. The fight is no longer for freedom from political domination, but against HIV/AIDS.HIV/AIDS is a continuing, critical public health issue. It is now the leading cause of death in Namibia, Africa and the fourth common cause of death worldwide. The HIV/AIDS crisis continues to expand in numbers and extent, without immediate medical solutions in view. HIV/AIDS is not only a health issue, it has socio-economic implications too. …

  2. National HIV/AIDS policy for the education sector

    The National HIV/AIDS Policy for the Education Sector formalises the rights and responsibilities of every person involved, directly or indirectly, in the education sector with regard to HIV and AIDS: the learners, their parents and care givers, educators, managers, administrators, support staff and civil society. This (policy) national strategy will provide a framework to implement and monitor and evaluate the impact of its HIV/AIDS interventions and the effects of HIV/AIDS on its labour force over time. …

  3. Managing educational quality in an AIDS environment: development of a district-level database

    Maintaining and enhancing educational quality in the context of the HIV and AIDS epidemic is particularly difficult because the virus is infecting increasing numbers of teaching and administrative staff in the education sector. The epidemic is also affecting pupils. Many have lost one or both parents, leading to financial strains and erratic attendance. In this context, it is important to track on a regular basis factors affecting educational quality during the school year in order to take corrective and preventive measures. …

  4. Le VIH/SIDA dans le secteur de l'éducation au Mali

    L'approche sectorielle de l'épidémie du VIH /SIDA a amené les acteurs du système éducatif dans différents pays à aborder la question de son incidence sur l'école. L'UNESCO dans le cadre de son programme régional en Afrique a développé de nombreuses interventions. Les jeunes, en particulier les filles et les jeunes femmes âgées de 15 à 24 ans sont les plus vulnérables à l'infection au VIH. Cette tranche d'âge est celle qui constitue également la population scolaire. Elle est en outre le groupe qui doit assurer la relève pour le développement des pays africains. …

  5. L'impact du VIH et du sida sur le système éducatif au Togo

    La très forte stigmatisation et le silence qui entoure l'épidémie aggravent les effets du VIH et du sida en milieu scolaire. Ici et là, associations et ONG travaillent activement pour la prise en charge des personnes vivant avec le VIH. Une loi togolaise de 2005 pour la protection des personnes vis-à-vis du VIH devrait venir renforcer l'action de l'État. Après les travaux réalisés au Burkina Faso en 2005, l'IIPE continue son enquête en Afrique de l'Ouest pour analyser les stratégies les plus adaptées à chaque pays dans la lutte du système éducatif contre le VIH. …

  6. L'impact du VIH et du SIDA sur le système éducatif au Burkina Faso

    Cet ouvrage recense les effets de la pandémie sur l'offre et la demande dans l'enseignement primaire et secondaire au Burkina Faso, ainsi que les réponses apportées pour limiter ces effets. Il en ressort avant tout une très forte stigmatisation dans le milieu scolaire. Celle-ci entraine notamment une faible participation des enseignants vivants avec le VIH dans les efforts de prévention, une formation insuffisante des enseignants, ainsi qu'un manque de prise en charge des orphelins et un accès limité aux soins pour les personnes séro positives.

  7. HIV/AIDS in Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology: a case study

    This report sets out the findings of a case study commissioned by Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA) Working on Higher Education, on the way HIV/AIDS affects JKUAT, and to document the responses and coping mechanisms. The purpose of the studies is to generate understanding of the way the disease is affecting universities and to identify responses of staff, students and management that might profitably be shared with sister institutions in similar circumstances.

  8. HIV/AIDS and young people: hope for tomorrow

    This booklet examines the impact of HIV/AIDS on young people, looking at why they are being hit by the epidemic. It puts forward some ideas for HIV/AIDS prevention education and lists some principles for working with young people.

  9. HIV/AIDS and child labour

    As the HIV/AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa grows in scope and intensity, the situation of children has become more precarious. Advances in the well-being of children in terms of social welfare and health, achieved over several decades, are being compromised. One significant change has been the impact of HIV/AIDS on child labour, especially in its worst forms. Where children are orphaned by the death of one or both parents, general well-being - including opportunities for schooling, proper nutrition and health care - is adversely affected. …

  10. HIV/AIDS and Education in Uganda: Window of Opportunity?

    This study of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the education sector was part of a three country study (Uganda, Malawi and Botswana) and had three broad aims: To assess the strategies being used to educate students about HIV/AIDS in schools; To assess the impact on students as orphans, caregivers and those infected with HIV; To assess the impact on teachers as educators and employees.

  11. HIV/AIDS and education

    This paper shows the overlap in the goals and targets for diminishing poverty and the immediate need for action against HIV/AIDS. The epidemic is growing quickly in South Africa and educators and learners need proper care. The report begins by describing the current situation in South Africa and then suggests ways forward.

  12. HIV and conflict: a double emergency. "Without war, we could fight AIDS"

    In the decade ahead, HIV/AIDS is expected to kill ten times more people than conflict. In conflict situations, children and young people are most at risk from both HIV/AIDS infection and violence. In this report, Save the Children calls on governments, donors and humanitarian agencies to uphold children's rights and to channel resources into preventing what for many young people is already a double emergency.

  13. HIV and AIDS in context: the needs of learners and educators

    The following 'think piece' is a collection of observations selected principally from a very rapid September 2003 tour of Malawi, Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda, recent fieldwork in Botswana, Rwanda and Zimbabwe, and UNESCO Nairobi cluster workshops on education and teachers held in Kigali and Kampala early in 2003. The 2003 tour confirmed previous impressions about where we are and where we need to go. Many of the observations and comments on HIV and teacher education are personal: they are meant to challenge our perceptions of what we are doing and how we are doing it. …

  14. Guidelines for HIV/AIDS Interventions in Emergency Settings

    The purpose of these guidelines is to enable governments and cooperating agencies, including UN Agencies and NGOs, to deliver the minimum required multisectoral response to HIV/AIDS during the early phase of emergency situations. These guidelines, focusing on the early phase of an emergency, should not prevent organizations from integrating such activities in their preparedness planning. As a general rule, this response should be integrated into existing plans and the use of local resources should be encouraged. …

  15. Getting started! Running a Junior Farmer Field and Life School: empowering orphans and vulnerable children living in a world with HIV and AIDS

    In response to the growing number of children orphaned by AIDS, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the World Food Programme and other partners have implemented Junior Farmer Field and Life Schools in some African countries. These are designed to empower orphans and other vulnerable children aged 12 to 18 years who live in communities where HIV/AIDS has had a strong impact on food security. …
