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.
