  1. Learning and teaching about AIDS at school

    HIV/AIDS education in schools is often denied to children and young people because the subject is considered too sensitive or controversial to be taught or it is difficult to find a place for it in an already overcrowded school curriculum. This document examines the challenges affecting the implementation of HIV/AIDS education in schools, it also documents effective responses, which include creating a partnership between policy-makers, religious and community leaders, parents and teachers in order to ensure the implementation of an effective HIV/AIDS education programme.

  2. Integrating HIV/STD prevention in the school setting: a position paper

    This position paper addresses the integration of HIV/STD-related programmes into the school system, whether through education about reproductive health, life skills or other important health issues. It also discusses the development and monitoring of policies that are essential for effective programmes, and provides information on how young people can learn to cope with the increasingly complex demands of relationships.

  3. Violence free zone: end school-related violence, prevent HIV/AIDS

    As national Ministries of Education, with support from the international donor community, begin making partial strides towards the Millennium Development Goals, the significant issue of school-related violence is largely absent from national education plans and from the priorities of donors. School-related violence not only undermines efforts to reach gender parity and universal primary education by 2015, but also dramatically increases children's vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. …

  4. The potential contribution of schooling to rolling back HIV and AIDS

    Increasing the salience of schooling in countering the AIDS epidemic suggests the need to confront many of the challenges posed by current education and school systems.

    The overall purpose of this study was to understand what factors contribute to teachers' willingness to communicate about HIV/AIDS in the broad educational setting (schools and communities). The study sought to fill the gap in the research on teachers and HIV/AIDS which has typically focused on cataloguing teachers' knowledge and attitudes, but without relating them directly to practice. …

  8. The Impact of HIV/AIDS on the Education Sector in Africa: Sub-Regional Outlook and Best Practices (Eastern and Southern Africa)

    This paper examines one aspect of the seemingly inexorable advance of HIV/AIDS: the way it has impacted on the education sector in Eastern and Southern Africa. The paper also examines the adjustments the sector has made to the epidemic and the steps it has taken to slow down its transmission. The overall impression is one of disarray, inadequate understanding, and piecemeal response-several projects, but few programmes. …

  11. Teacher Training: Essential for School-Based Reproductive Health and HIV/AIDS Education. Focus on Sub-Saharan Africa

    Teacher training in any subject is important. For teaching information and skills related to reproductive health (RH) and HIV/AIDS, teacher training is even more essential - and complex. In many countries of sub-Saharan Africa, the AIDS epidemic has spread to the general population, with up to half of all new HIV infections occurring among youth under age 25. Since most youth attend school at least for primary education, school-based programs are a logical place to reach young people. …

  14. Synthese National sur le VIH/SIDA et l'éducation au Sénégal

    L'analyse des documents ayant servi à la réalisation de cette synthèse laisse transparaître la caractéristique suivante : grande nécessité d'une meilleure prise en charge par l'école et le système éducatif de la question du VIH/SIDA.Malgré la bonne vision dégagée par les documents officiels, à caractère d'orientation et de cadre pour lutter contre le SIDA, ils demeurent encore généraux et pas suffisamment articulés à des actions visant une modification substantielle des attitudes et des comportements vis-à-vis de la maladie. …

  15. Study on the Impact of the Schools HIV/AIDS Intervention Programme in Swaziland
