Training of Teachers Manual on Preventive Education Against HIV/AIDS in the School Setting

August 2003 - UNESCO, in collaboration with SEAMEO-TROPMED and funded by the Japanese Funds-in-Trust (JFIT), developed a manual for teacher trainers (TOT) on how to integrate HIV/AIDS preventive education into the teacher training curriculum.

The project originated from the Prevention of HIV/AIDS and Drug Abuse through Quality Improvement of Curriculum and Teaching Materials in Asia and the Pacific project supported by UNESCO Bangkok and funded by JFIT. This latter project is comprised of four phases: (i) a situational analysis conducted in 1996 in China, India, Indonesia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand; (ii) consultations held in 1997; (iii) teacher-training activities; and (iv) the production of a regional strategy and a comprehensive package of HIV/AIDS Teaching-Learning Materials. Related work includes the partnership for Focusing Resources on Effective School Health (FRESH) developed by WHO, UNICEF, UNESCO and the World Bank. 

UNESCO, in collaboration with SEAMEO-TROPMED and funded by the Japanese Funds-in-Trust (JFIT), developed a manual for teacher trainers (TOT) on how to integrate HIV/AIDS preventive education into the teacher training curriculum. This manual is considered a generic tool to be adapted to the local contexts in countries in the Asia and the Pacific region. 

The evaluation consisted of: (i) review of relevant documentation including reports and the TOT manual; (ii) a survey using a questionnaire sent to Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, East Timor, India, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Nepal, Pakistan, Samoa, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Viet Nam, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, and Sri Lanka; and (iii) field visits undertaken to: Cambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.
