About this title


The feminization of HIV epidemics has been steadily increasing worldwide. In sub-Saharan Africa, 75 per cent of young people infected are women and girls. Gender disparities in education contribute to social conditions that facilitate the spread of HIV. This book will help government policymakers and NGO practitioners improve their understanding of how schools can practice gender equality and provide HIV and AIDS education.

Researchers, NGOs, and donors contribute case studies and research from around the world. They show the extreme importance of educating girls―who are less likely than boys to attend school and therefore are more vulnerable to HIV. Also addressed are the need to educate boys against violence towards girls; teachers against sexual abuse of girls; and ministers of education about implementing, monitoring, and evaluating equal gender practices in education.

Topical and informative, this fascinating book includes examples from South Africa and South-East Asia and seeks to explain and illustrate the key arguments and debates in this area.
