HIV Preventive Education Information Kit for School Teachers

This initiative was supported in 2006-2007 by UNAIDS UBW funds and is currently being funded by Japanese Funds-In-Trust for 2008-2009 activities. The goal of the project is to strengthen education sector responses to HIV and AIDS at the school level by developing an information kit on HIV and AIDS education for school teachers.

The HIV Preventive Education Information Kit for School Teachers is aimed at assisting and guiding school teachers in dealing with challenges related to HIV and AIDS in the school setting. This includes countering community resistance to HIV and AIDS education, addressing stigma and discrimination and reducing risk behaviours.

The HIV Preventive Education Information Kit for School Teachers was originally developed in English (pdf) and has been translated into various languages and adapted for the local contexts in Nepal, China, Kazakhstan, and the Philippines.

The project aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • To mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS at the school level
  • To prevent HIV infection among children and young people
  • To build wider platforms of support for HIV preventive education, particularly from school teachers.

Translated and adapted Kits: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Kazakhstan (in Kazakh and in Russian), Kyrgyzstan (in Kyrgyz and in Russian), Lao PDR, Nepal, the Philippines.
