  11. HIV prevention in basic education: the heart of a community-based AIDS response in Francophone Africa

    Cette brochure présente les approches développées par trois projets de la GTZ implantés dans des pays francophones d'Afrique de l'ouest : le Tchad, le Mali et la Guinée. Il s'agit du- « Projet éducation de base » (PEB) au Tchad,- « Projet Lutte contre le VIH/SIDA dans les programmes de l'éducation de base » (PLC - VIH/SIDA) au Mali,- « Projet d'appui à l'éducation de base en moyenne Guinée » (PAPEBMGUI) en Guinée. Ces trois projets ont expérimenté les stratégies et les approches présentées dans cette brochure. Leurs concepts reposent sur une approche multisectorielle qui met en place une collaboration étroite entre un projet d'éducation et un projet de santé (et/ou des structures médicales locales). Les mesures de formation et d'information mises en oeuvre visent à transmettre des connaissances sur la sexualité et la prévention des infections sexuellement transmissibles (IST), du VIH et du SIDA, mais aussi à développer les capacités de communication chez les différents groupes cibles (par ex. entre parents et enfants) et à promouvoir ainsi le dialogue et les initiatives de la communauté. Un objectif essentiel des formations porte sur le développement de compétences sociales et de citoyenneté et vise à promouvoir des comportements responsables au moyen de techniques d'apprentissages actives, centrées sur les apprenants.
