Mayes, Jane Ruthven, Ed.
The contents of this booklet come from contributions to the 1995 Global Conference on School Health and HIV/AIDS Prevention. The objectives of the booklet are: (1) to strengthen the awareness of teachers and education personnel regarding the importance of developing school health and HIV/AIDS prevention curricula; (2) to show the specific roles of schools in promoting health, especially in relation to HIV; and (3) to develop school health, especially around AIDS issues. Section 1 explains the importance of education for prevention and encourages organizations to use their potential to take concerted action in promoting comprehensive school health policy regarding HIV/AIDS. Section 2 addresses the need to create community-based programs that take into account the concerns of parents and other community leaders and that minimize resistance to education efforts.

Section 5 discusses the training necessary for educational personnel who will be teaching about HIV/AIDS. Section 6 describes a resource guide that is available for curriculum planners.
