This e-learning course is designed for development practitioners and provides guidance on how to develop and implement culturally appropriate HIV and AIDS programs.

Working together with Kineo, an award winning e-learning provider, UNESCO developed the following training for the design of culturally appropriate HIV and AIDS programs. This e-learning provides guidance on how to take a community’s culture into account when conceiving and implementing an intervention and is ideally suited for program officers in the field, working directly with communities. It is also intended for practitioners working in centralised offices to help them understand what culturally appropriate approaches are and how they might assist their organisations to respond better in this manner.

The eLearning contains 5 training modules:

  • What is a cultural Approach?
  • Catalyzing Change
  • Structural Factors
  • Participation and Ownership
  • Tools and Tips

These modules are intended as a set but each module can be completed separately at the user’s own pace. One module takes approximately 25 minutes to complete. The entire eLearning with all 5 modules can be accessed here.
