  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. Although it seems as if teachers to some extent do feel comfortable with the teaching of sexuality education at school, the question however remains as to whether youth get the information they require. In this article, I present drawings produced by teacher participants in order to investigate the beliefs that teachers hold regarding young people’s needs from sexuality education. …

  6. Staff and students' perception of an HIV/AIDS' strategy: A case study of a South African rural-based university

    Background: South African communities have high rates of people living with HIV and AIDS. Universities, particularly those in rural regions are examples of communities noted to be high risk areas of these infections. HIV/AIDS strategies were developed and implemented by higher education institutions to address this concern. Despite this, the prevalence and incidence of HIV and AIDS remain high in academic settings. Yet studies in this area in South Africa are rare. …

  7. Policy and strategic framework on HIV and AIDS for higher education

The alignment of the Policy and Strategic Framework with the NSP is based on the integral relationship of higher education institutions to society and its imperatives. …

This guide may also be useful to other sectors of civil society. …

  14. Development and implementation support for HIV and AIDS workplace programmes at twenty three public higher education institutions in South Africa

    This document contains a situational analysis of higher education institutions (HEI) in South Africa to determine the state of HIV and AIDS workplace programmes. It concludes that no HEI currently has a comprehensive workplace HIV and AIDS programme although all have some elements in place. The content and reach of HIV and AIDS services for staff varies greatly across institutions. On the one hand, a few institutions have many elements of workplace HIV and AIDS programmes in place whilst at the other end of the scale, several HEIs have almost no functioning programme for employees. …

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