Africa Sub-Regional HIV and AIDS Capacity-Building Workshops

From 23-04-2007 to 22-06-2007 (Africa) 

Africa Sub-Regional HIV and AIDS Capacity-Building Workshops

In mid-2007, UNESCO organized a series of sub-regional workshops in Africa to build the capacity of field staff and partner agencies to address the impact of HIV and AIDS on the education sector. The workshops brought together representatives from UNESCO and National Commissions for UNESCO, Ministries of Education, UNAIDS Cosponsors, and civil society.

Organized and facilitated by UNESCO’s Section on HIV and AIDS, in partnership with UNESCO regional and country offices, the Africa regional workshops were part of UNESCO’s ongoing efforts to continue and deepen strategic action on education and HIV & AIDS in the context of Education For All and UNESCO's Strategy for Responding to HIV and AIDS.

Three language-specific workshops took place: a workshop conducted in English for Anglophone African countries, a workshop conducted in French for Francophone African countries and a workshop conducted in Portuguese for Lusophone African countries. In total, over 100 individuals from 21 African countries attended the workshops.

During the workshops, participants shared experiences and lessons learnt with one another, increased their understanding of key strategic documents and tools, and built their capacity to apply the EDUCAIDS: Framework for Action to help plan and implement comprehensive education sector responses to HIV and AIDS.
