UNESCO hosts a workshop on Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in the Education Sector

From 04-11-2009 to 06-11-2009 (Tunis, Tunisia) 

UNESCO hosts a workshop on Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in the Education Sector

UNESCO is facilitating a workshop for the African Development Bank (ADB) 4-6 November in Tunis, Tunisia on “Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in the Education Sector”.

The workshop will draw on the IATT’s Toolkit for Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in the Education Sector: Guidelines for Development Cooperation Agencies and include 30 participants from ADB HQ and country offices in Burkina Faso, Malawi, Mali, Kenya, Nigeria and Senegal

The workshop aims to build participants’ knowledge and skills in HIV and AIDS mainstreaming. By the end of the workshop, participants are expected to be able to:

  • Describe what HIV and AIDS mainstreaming means in education and the importance of comprehensive education sector responses to HIV and AIDS
  • Identify the critical elements of successful HIV and AIDS mainstreaming in the education sector.
  • Identify the key areas to be covered for an assessment of the status of mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in education at the country-level; and the key steps to conduct this type of assessment.
  • Identify specific opportunities and entry points for HIV and AIDS mainstreaming in education in their respective countries.
  • Identify key steps to support the mainstreaming of issues such as gender equality and children affected by AIDS in education sector responses.
