Toolkit for Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in the Education Sector

This toolkit from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) on Education aims to help education staff from development cooperation agencies, including both development and humanitarian-oriented multilateral and bilateral agencies as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other civil society organisations, to support the process of mainstreaming HIV and AIDS into education sector planning and implementation.

It provides resources and support to assess the progress countries have made with respect to HIV and AIDS mainstreaming; to identify entry points and opportunities; and to establish priorities for advocacy and action. It is designed to be used as a reference tool or a resource for training and discussion, depending on the local needs and context.

The Toolkit - who and what it is for:

This toolkit aims to support education sector specialists in development cooperation agencies working in the field and at agency headquarters to:

  • Make a competent and comprehensive assessment of the status of mainstreaming HIV and AIDS into education sector plans.
  • Identify key areas that are not being addressed and decide on priorities.
  • Develop a strategy for addressing the gaps.
  • Constructively engage in dialogue with ministries of education and other partners to improve the mainstreaming of HIV and AIDS in education.
  • Periodically review progress towards HIV and AIDS mainstreaming in education.
  • Have access to updated resources on HIV and AIDS mainstreaming in education for their own use, and for sharing with other education partners.

It is expected that the toolkit will also be useful in helping education staff to engage with development agency colleagues working on related issues, such as good governance, social development and human rights. It should also help them to engage with other colleagues in the sector, such as ministry of education staff and partners working for NGOs.
