  1. Picture that: supporting sexuality educators in narrowing the knowledge/practice gap

    Teaching about sex and relationships is one of the greatest challenges in not only the combating of HIV and AIDS, but also in preparing the youth for responsible sexual behaviour.

  5. School as a workplace in Kenya: evaluation of the teachers matter HIV/AIDS project

    Countless HIV/AIDS interventions rely on teachers to deliver vital prevention messages to their students but do not target the teachers as direct beneficiaries, even though the teachers themselves are at risk of HIV infection.
