PDF File Size: 77 KB | Download   
A quarter of a century into the pandemic, HIV and AIDS are seen to be one of the greatest threats to global stability and progress. There are 8,500 new HIV infections every day. In 2005, nearly 3 million people died from AIDS-related causes, contributing to the more than 20 million deaths since the first AIDS diagnosis in 1981. The HIV and AIDS situation in Nepal has been categorized as a concentrated epidemic, which is spreading rapidly among its most-at-risk groups. 70,253 people in the adult population (15-49years) are estimated (NCASC 2005) to be living with the HIV virus. The largest number of HIV positive cases in the last 18 months was reported among 15-24 and 30-39 year olds. Prevention is the only way to limit the spread of HIV and education is the foundation for developing the behaviours that can reduce risk and vulnerability: it can
promote awareness; empower individuals to make free and informed decisions; and develop attitudes and competencies that reduce risky behaviour. In 2002, UNESCO Bangkok developed an Advocacy Toolkit targeted at middle and senior level
officials of the Ministries of Education in the Asia Pacific region. The 2002 advocacy toolkit aims at promoting HIV preventive education and increasing awareness of the impact of HIV and AIDS on the education sector. The 2002 advocacy kit includes comprehensive information on the nature and transmission of HIV and AIDS, HIV prevalence in the world and Asia, the impact of the pandemic on educational systems, the need for preventive and life skills education and ways to facilitate the latter, and information on international treaties and commitments relating to HIV, AIDS and education. Fourteen countries in the region have so far adapted and launched the 2002 advocacy toolkit.
