XIX International AIDS Conference

The XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) is occurring at a time when the scale-up of HIV programmes has begun to impact the spread of HIV. However, financial challenges are threatening these gains. AIDS 2012 is an opportunity for stakeholders to bring together their expertise to enable effective national responses.

UNESCO’s delegation to the Conference will be working to highlight the critical role of education as part of the response to HIV. It represents a critical opportunity to advocate for education through UNESCO-led and education sector activities.

UNESCO will conduct presentations, workshops, and complementary sessions to highlight the critical role of education in the HIV response. These include youth-friendly services, mobilizing young key populations, and evidenced-based planning for sexuality education. UNESCO-led workshops are highly participatory and interactive, combining medical, educational and rights-based paradigms to assess the central issues. UNESCO will also showcase its innovative planning tool, the Sexuality Education Review and Analysis Tool (SERAT), developed to analyse sexuality education programmes in depth.
