This toolkit provides a guide to activities across the following health topics: tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, nutrition, hygiene, sanitation and infectious diseases, physical activity, injury prevention and violence prevention.
In a comprehensive approach, the education sector uses all means at its disposal to promote and protect the health of learners and staff and to mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS on the system itself.
Poverty and limited access to health care, education, and paid employement create situations that make young people most vulnerable to HIV infection.
This kit has been developed in the framework of the EI/EDC/WHO EFAIDS programme to help unions, their members, and teachers around the world protect themselves and their colleagues from HIV infection, and take effective leadership for HIV and AIDS and health education in schools.
Education International, Education Development Center, and the World Health Organisation have developed this toolkit to help educators and their unions support and involve educators who are living with HIV.
