ARE THERE ANY DISPARITIES BETWEEN GIRLS AND BOYS IN THE RESPONSE OF THE EDUCATION SECTOR OF HIV AND AIDS?
Published Monday, October 3, 2011
The gender-balance issue ranks high in most educational HIV and AIDS prevention programmes in the countries of Southern and East Africa which is the region hardest hit by HIV and AIDS. Indeed, such programmes aim at “young people” – which is a group at risk, as it represents 45% of new HIV infections. Moreover, it has been observed that young women in Sub-Saharan Africa are more vulnerable as they are 8 times more exposed to HIV than are young men (UNESCO, 2011). The main reasons invoked for this are gender inequalities and an unequal sharing of power between men and women (UNAIDS IATT, 2009).
