HIV & AIDS and Educator Development, Conduct and Support. Good Policy and Practice in HIV & AIDS and Education. Booklet 3
Attawell, Kathy; Elder, Katharine
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)
Although there is a need for enhanced evidence-based information on successful HIV and AIDS education interventions, much has already been learnt about good practices and policies in the education sector's response to the pandemic. This booklet, to be used in tandem with others in the series, aims to further expand our knowledge by highlighting lessons learnt in the realm of safe, secure and supportive learning environments. The Good Policy and Practice in HIV & AIDS and Education series presents ideas, research results, policy and programmatic examples which project and policy developers and implementers can draw on as they prepare education systems to respond to the needs of HIV affected and infected learners and their communities. Understanding that the education system reaches beyond the traditional classroom into homes, communities, religious centres and other learning forums, this booklet addresses educational practices in both formal and non-formal learning environments. It discusses issues affecting educators in the context of HIV and AIDS, including educator training, conduct, and care and support. The booklet highlights issues and lessons learned and suggests policy and programming strategies and actions to address the impact of HIV and AIDS on learners and educators in less developed countries. It also includes a bibliography, a list of tools and resources, and sources of additional information. [This booklet was produced by UNESCO's Division for the Promotion of Quality Education, Section for Education for an Improved Quality of Life. For Booklet 2 in this series, see ED495662.]
