Case report UNAIDS 2011-2012

Results of surveys conducted in several countries, the report of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS (UNAIDS) shows that less than half of young people have correct knowledge about HIV.

The document warns that in some regions it has detected a worrying degree of stagnation in efforts to raise awareness of people to prevent infection with HIV.

The report of UNAIDS 2011-2012, now published, is following another held in 2004. One goal is to know if you are experiencing a progression, regression or stagnation of educational work.

According to the global coordinator for AIDS UNESCO, Soo-Hyang Choi, education is a protective factor for HIV infection.

The present study showed that almost all countries have an educational policy in relation to HIV, as well as a larger number of teachers trained to share information about the epidemic.

But UNAIDS says that development policies, in theory, do not translate into implementation necessarily in practice. According to the document, despite advances, the scope of education about HIV is still very small.

The survey also concluded that 39 countries have moved forward with the process of global education to combat the virus that causes the disease.

The experts who prepared the document emphasized that an AIDS-free generation is within reach. For them, the goals of zero new infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths are possible and start by education.

They suggested the creation of a management system in developing countries to coordinate and implement policies to combat the disease.

Other measures should be support for teacher training, choice of teaching materials suitable for school age and engage parents and communities in the implementation of the education program.
