ASKAIDS (African Sexual Knowledges and HIV/AIDS)
Phase 1 of this project, based in Sub-Saharan Africa, focused on understanding how primary age pupils acquire sexual knowledge, in what contexts and how this relates to the HIV education received in schools. The second phase (2011-12) expands the research to encompass six countries and aims to use consultation and dialogue with community members and pupils to establish a locally based curriculum development process for HIV education.

Consulting Pupils Toolkit
A key output of ASKAIDS Project One was the production of a Toolkit for consulting pupils which can be used to inform curriculum development. The Toolkit is available online at oer.educ.cam.ac.uk/wiki/ASKAIDS.
As part of the Centre for Commonwealth Education Summer Conference held in Mauritius (June 2010), the team produced a poster summarising the initial phase of the work and giving a general feel for the project context and participants. The poster is available for download.
