  1. Knowledge of HIV/AIDS and attitudes towards people living with HIV among the general staff of a public university in Malaysia

    Stigma and discrimination towards people living with HIV have been widely documented, and have extended their impact into the workplace. Stigmatising attitudes towards people living with HIV (PLHIV) in the workplace significantly hinder HIV prevention efforts and indirectly affect national development. This cross-sectional study was designed to determine the level of knowledge about HIV and AIDS and assess attitudes towards PLHIV among the general staff of Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), as well as to identify factors that are associated with it.

  2. A national study of LGBT educators' perceptions of their workplace climate

    This research provides important information on how to create climates where all educators feel safe, protected and valued within their schools. Ultimately, students will not excel to their full potential if all of their teachers do not feel safe and fully supported by their workplace environments. LGBT educators need then to work in as supportive a school climate as heterosexual educators. It is suspected they do not, but little quantitative evidence exists in the literature to know whether this is true. This study sought to fill this gap.

  3. AIDS and the accumulation and utilization of human capital in Africa

    Education is among the most prominent of the great challenges of development. This paper outlines the likely effects of the AIDS pandemic in Africa on the continent's ability to produce education and use it effectively for growth and poverty reduction. Four channels are explored. First, a supply effect: The deaths of millions of adults, and among them hundreds of thousands of teachers, will bring an increase in Africa's already relatively high fiscal burden of teacher salaries or the need to reduce the educational requirements of teachers. …

  4. A possible future of HIV and AIDS management in the school education sector in South Africa

    In South Africa HIV and Aids threaten the world of education if one only looks at prevalence rates. Approximately 5,41 million people in the country are living with HIV and Aids, of whom 257900 are children up to the age of 14. In a survey done by HSRC and the MRC about the health of South Africa's educators it was determined that the HIV prevalence among this group, across provinces age groups, gender and race, is about 12,7%. …

  5. L'impact du SIDA sur l'offre et la demande scolaires en Afrique Sub-Saharienne

    De manière schématique, le secteur de l'éducation se trouve affecté verticalement par la diminution de la qualité et de la quantité de l'enseignement offertes, étant donné que les enseignants affectés ou infectés assurent difficilement une offre efficiente ; de manière transversale, l'effet du sida sur la demande scolaire se traduit par une baisse sensible du nombre d'enfants scolarisés et même celui des enfants scolarisables. L'objet de cet article est d'analyser pour l'ensemble des pays au sud du Sahara, l'impact du sida sur l'offre et la demande scolaires. …

  6. Teacher shocks and student learning: evidence from Zambia

    A large literature examines the link between shocks to households and the educational attainment of children.We use new data to estimate the impact of shocks to teachers on student learning in Mathematics and English. Using absenteeism in the 30 days preceding the survey as a measure of these shocks we find large impacts: A 5-percent increase in the teacher's absence rate reduces learning by 4 to 8 percent of average gains over the year. …

  7. Response of the education sector in the Commonwealth Caribbean to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. A preliminary overview

    The intention of this note is to provide information on the education sector response to HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean, with particular reference to the concerns of the ILO for efforts to develop and apply workplace policies on HIV/AIDS in schools, training institutions and universities.

  8. Mitigating the impact of HIV on service providers. What has been attempted, what is working, what has not worked and why? A study commissioned by the DFID Service Delivery Team: Workstream on Capacity Development and Human Resources in collaboration with USAID

    Infected service providers feel the impact of HIV and AIDS directly. However, many more providers experience the impact of HIV and AIDS amongst their colleagues and families. Many also experience the impact of HIV and AIDS on the services they are able to provide and the needs of people they serve. DFID commissioned this rapid assessment of strategies to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS on service providers in order to guide DFID strategy. …

  9. Crafting institutional responses to HIV/AIDS: guidelines and resources for tertiary institutions in sub-Saharan Africa

    This document contains four papers that give guidance on what universities can do to address the challenge of HIV/AIDS. They provide an overview of what tertiary institutions in Africa are doing to combat HIV/AIDS, offer practical guidance on how universities can go about the process of developing and implementing institutional policies on HIV/AIDS, present a case study of how one teacher training college in Kenya undertook this task, and suggest what lessons have been learned from these various experiences.
