IIEP-ROSA hosting online training on education sector response to HIV and AIDS
28 April, 2017 | Blog

UNESCO Regional Office for Southern Africa in collaboration with the UNESCO Institute of Educational planning (IIEP) is hosting an online training course on Quantitative methods in monitoring and evaluating the education sector response to HIV and AIDS.

The training which commenced on the 24th of April and running till the 2nd of June 2017, seeks to reinforce skills in collecting, analyzing and reporting internationally recognized core indicators to measure education sector response to HIV and in formulating policies to monitor and evaluate the education sector response to HIV and AIDS.

Approximately 80 participants from 15 countries in Eastern and Southern Africa region and one team from West Africa who are members of the Education Management Information System in the Ministries of Education, HIV focal points in the education sector and UNESCO National Programme Officers for HIV and Health Education are taking part.

The course aims to ensure participants are able to review indicators associated with monitoring and evaluating the education sector response. Additionally, participants will learn to critically examine the quality of annual school census questionnaires, to construct the core indicators and additional indicators that are relevant for their country context and to identify the most relevant indicators. Participants will interact with the three modules of the course.

The education sector is identified as important to impart knowledge and personal skills, which are essential for HIV prevention. In countries with a generalized HIV epidemic, the education sector is key in contributing to mitigate the impact of AIDS on students, education personnel, their families, and communities.


“I hope participants will gain more knowledge with regards to monitoring and evaluating the delivery of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) using internationally recognized core indicators to measure the education sector response to HIV. It is my hope that skills of countries to collect, analyze and report on the indicators will be reinforced so that we are able to tell the world the great work we are doing.”
