Learning for Life: Classroom Activities for HIV and AIDS Education

This workbook provides activities to help students prevent new HIV infections and gain skills related to coping with all aspects of HIV and AIDS. Gaining this knowledge and these skills can help students live a healthy lifestyle, complete a basic education, and consequently reach their potential to attain their life goals.

The book covers all aspects of HIV and AIDS education, which includes not only basic information about HIV and AIDS and prevention strategies, but also HIV counseling, testing, treatment, and care; gender inequalities; stigma and discrimination; and involvement of people living with or affected by HIV and AIDS. It also contains lessons tailored to students in three different age groups: under age 10, ages 10–14, and ages 15+. The age groups have been determined by the changes that occur in the development of children and adolescents in relation to cognitive ability and psychosocial and sexual growth.
