Limited attention has been given to helping educators to deal with the new challenges posed by the epidemic. Even less attention has been given to protecting educators from HIV infection and to providing care, treatment and support for educators infected with or affected by HIV and AIDS. There are also very few programmes addressing the needs of other education sector personnel, such as planners, managers and support staff. This booklet looks at educator development and support; educator conduct; and prevention, care, treatment and support of infected and affected eduators
This booklet addresses the following issues for learners: - Rights and access to education - Protection - Knowledge, attitudes and skills - Care and support Schools and other educational settings play an important role in educating young people about HIV and AIDS, developing the skills they need to protect themselves from HIV infection, tackling fear, stigma and discrimination and promoting care and support of those who are infected with and affected by HIV and AIDS
This draft paper presents some of the challenges of Universal Access from a health communication viewpoint, and outlines possible tools available to AIDS policymakers, donors and managers who are engaged in shaping the response in the most affected areas
This booklet is the first in a series of publications that addresses the role of education in tackling the spread of HIV, and looks in particular at UNESCO's work in this area. It provides an overview of how HIV and AIDS affect the demand for, supply and quality of education, and what policy and programming responses have been developed and need to be developed. The booklet is intended for policy makers, donors and NGOs but will also be useful to educational institutions and teachers working on HIV and AIDS
This handbook begins by clarifing the concepts of behaviour change communication (BCC) interventions in the context of UNFPA programmes. This is followed by a brief presentation of some of the most common theoretical frameworks that serve to help gain an understanding of the processes that can influence health-related behaviours. An important aspect of the handbook is the step-by-step guide on following a process or chain of events to plan, design, execute, monitor and evaluate BCC interventions
This article identifies three major constraints to better HIV and AIDS coverage in the South African media, which are the imperative of news values, economic constraints and lack of commitment to HIV and AIDS stories. The lack of editorial-level policy around HIV and AIDS coverage means that editorial decisions tend to be ad-hoc, reactive, and largely determined on a case by case basis
This concise article critically reviews the concept of behaviour change as it has been applied to individual behaviour in relation to HIV/AIDS. It notes the limits of cognitive approaches to behaviour change when applied within complex contexts and variations of risk to HIV infection. With regard to communication there is a need to move beyond top-down approaches and to incorporate horizontal and participatory approaches. These include recognising and resourcing the role of civil society responses to HIV/AIDS
