Gender-sensitive response to HIV and AIDS
UNESCO supports and promotes a gender-sensitive response to HIV and AIDS by:
- Supporting education systems to be gender-responsive by seeking system-wide responses through EFA national action plans;
- Promoting human rights-based and culturally appropriate approaches that support women’s empowerment and more balanced gender relations;
- Using training and non-formal education as key entry points to address gender inequality;
- Developing empowering educational strategies and material for adult and lifelong learning; and
- Promoting the better use of information and communication technologies, public entertainment and awareness campaigns (radio and TV) to deliver socially targeted, gender-sensitive and effective messages about HIV and AIDS and the need for equal gender relations.
