MOE Project Title: Safe Guarding Our Work Force
HIV Focal Point: Janelle Sweatnam
Milestones & Background
The Education system continues to have an impact on HIV & AIDS, young people who fail to complete a basic education, are twice as likely to become infected with HIV. Education helps to overcome the conditions that facilitate the spread of HIV and can create the understanding and tolerance that contribute to reduced stigma and discrimination against vulnerable and marginalized communities and people living with HIV.
It is important that we strengthen the education sector’s response to HIV and safeguard our children and our workforce.
