Zanzibar education sector SRH/HIV/LS assessment report

80 p.

The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training has been implementing SRH/HIV/LS education initiatives for more than a decade now and is currently striving to strengthen this education in its learning institutions in Zanzibar. Amongst its efforts to achieve this objective, the integration of a number of existing training manuals focusing this education package was undertaken in order to provide a common understanding in teaching these topics at all levels of education. This was done through the support from World Bank through Zanzibar Basic Education Improvement Project (ZABEIP). The developed integrated manual titled "Mwongozo wa Kufundishia Stadi za Maisha kwa Vijana", however, is still found to have its contents not focused to each thematic area and not categorized by different levels of education (i.e. It is not clearly articulating which content is to be taught at which level). Under this situation therefore, a need to have some guidelines to support its implementation was found crucial. Before embarking into the development of the guidelines, the Ministry proposed SRH/HIV/LS education assessment to provide some basic information on its overall implementation, strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats and its achievements and challenges. This document presents the findings of this assessment.
