Promoting better health and well-being for all children and young people and supporting the contribution of national education sectors to ending AIDS are among the important UNESCO commitments towards achievement of the 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Following these commitments, the most recent UNESCO Strategy on Education for Health and Well-Being (2016) has identified two strategic priorities: ensuring that all children and young people:
- benefit from good quality, comprehensive sexuality education that includes HIV education (CSE), and
- have access to safe, inclusive, and health-promoting learning environments.
Countries seeking to improve their policies and school-based programmes around CSE will need to conduct monitoring and evaluating (M&E) to ensure the delivery of high-quality comprehensive HIV and sexuality education. Such M&E, however, can be challenging, as many decisions must be made upfront, including: what to measure and how, whether to use the same measure over time for comparison purposes, when to measure (short-, mid-, or long-term changes), and which (sufficient and sustainable) resources to use.
To reinforce participants’ skills in collecting, analysing, interpreting, and reporting core indicators, and in formulating policies to monitor and evaluate the delivery of comprehensive HIV and sexuality education by the education sector.
Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
- Better understand: (a) international, regional and national commitments to education for health and well-being and (b) internationally recognized core indicators for monitoring and evaluating the delivery of comprehensive HIV and sexuality education;
- Critically examine the opportunities, process and methodology for integrating internationally recognized core indicators into the national Educational Management Information System (EMIS);
- Identify additional existing data sources other than the Annual School Census, used for measuring the delivery of comprehensive HIV and sexuality education;
- Enhance skills in data analysis, interpretation and reporting on the delivery of comprehensive HIV and sexuality education;
- Improve skills in data analysis, interpretation and reporting on the delivery of comprehensive HIV and sexuality education.
Professionals from EMIS in the Ministry of Education, the HIV focal point in the education ministry if his/her participation is critical depending on the country context and the UNESCO national programme officer for HIV and school health if available.
