This new toolkit aims to support young people in Eastern Europe and Central Asia who are particularly vulnerable to HIV infection and are facing widespread stigma, discrimination and violence.
Violence occurs in many schools in Central Asia. It is often gender-based, targets the most vulnerable and remains unattended.
The number of people, including children, living with HIV keeps growing in the Russian Federation and other countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, which is the only region where HIV prevalence remains on the rise.
The HIV Preventive Education Information Kit for School Teachers is an attempt to provide teachers and teacher trainees with the basic information that they should know when teaching young people about HIV and AIDS.
The Advocacy Toolkit provides the basic information on HIV and AIDS, identifies the role of Education in HIV prevention and gives recommendations on preventive education including monitoring and evaluation of education programmes.
This Toolkit has been developed for staff of Ministries of education and education departments to increase their awareness on HIV and AIDS and reinforce their commitments in preventive education.
This kit includes the information on issues surrounding the relationship between HIV/AIDS and Education as well as human rights, stigma and discrimination.
