School Health, Nutrition, HIV& AIDS

Among the most pressing issues affecting people in Guyana is HIV and AIDS. The Ministry of Education has therefore taken the decision to position HIV prevention within the context of an holistic programme of school health and nutrition activities and it sees the education sector as having a vital role to play in the country’s response to the epidemic.

Recent evaluation of this programme highlighted the need for additional training and effective monitoring of the teachers trained to deliver the programme.
