Abstract: The HIV/AIDS rates among South Africans remain at alarmingly high levels. The South African government has identified education as one of the key strategies to combat the disease. In particular, the Ministry of Education has incorporated life skills and HIV/AIDS education programs into their public school curriculum. However, there is great disparity between the curriculum implemented, curriculum taught, and the HIV & AIDS knowledge of 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds in a disadvantaged community in South Africa. The goal of this research is to examine if 10, 11 and 12 year olds know more than they are being taught about HIV & AIDS and if what they are taught constructively contributes to their HIV & AIDS knowledge. The government has implemented an HIV prevention curriculum; however, educators choose not to teach or to alter the standard curriculum to fit their personal or community beliefs. This alteration allows for the continued dispersion of incorrect information throughout the community. Our research was conducted through a series of individual interviews of educators in a South African community in the Western Cape. The authors also reviewed the “Life Skills” curriculum of the Western Cape Education Department in comparison to the curriculum being taught by the teachers. The evidence suggests that the education being taught does not match the mandated curriculum nor does it increase the knowledge of HIV & AIDS amongst 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds.

Abstract: Preventing the spread of HIV and promoting HIV testing has become paramount to the survival of Africa nations such as Zambia. Communication campaigns to prevent the spread of HIV and to promote testing are abundant, yet not enough Zambians have adopted the promoted behaviors, and as a result, the spread of HIV continues to rise. Researchers must examine how individuals respond to campaign messages within a cultural context to inform the use of such campaigns in promoting health behavior change. This paper examines the extent to which HIV prevention and testing behaviors are predicated on the perceptual gap, which is the difference in the estimated impact of messages on the self versus others. The behavioural hypothesis of the third person perception suggests the perceptual gap is a better predictor of people’s behaviors than their exposure to media messages. In a collectivistic culture, the notion of the third person perception and the behavioural hypothesis take on particular importance. In a study of the impact of HIV/AIDS messages on 344 Zambian college students, I examine first- and third-person perceptions of HIV/AIDS messages, focusing on the differences in the estimated impact of the messages in Public Service Announcements (PSAs) versus those presented within a local serial drama. I also examine the perceptual gap, message exposure and other important health behavior change concepts as predictors of condom use and intentions and HIV testing and intentions, examining sex differences. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.

Abstract: In the face of colonial powers, where do First Nations people living with HIV/AIDS seek help when they are turned away from mainstream urban HIV/AIDS organizations? This paper discusses a series of indigenous women taking the forefront in Indigenous U.S./Canadian AIDS activism and organizing -particularly in response to settler colonial ideas of race and illness. They are creating organizations that not only help their communities and all indigenous people, but also serve as reminders to the more mainstream organizations that Native people are not invisible. They do this by employing a series of uniquely indigenous feminisms to ensure the success of their organizations.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: There is a rich research base analyzing actual and potential linkages between HIV & AIDS and education, including the role education can play in HIV prevention and mitigation, as well as about the role HIV&AIDS plays in undermining important education goals (EFA2015). This literature base has grown considerably since the introduction of ART therapies that improve the quality of life for people living with HIV&AIDS. The literature has not been systematically reviewed however, and there is no current assessment of research to guide policy and decision makers about this important area. The current global financial climate requires donors and development partners to prioritize investments in education as well as HIV&AIDS, making sure that funds are spent on activities that demonstrate highest quantifiable results. While many ministries of education continue to seek funding for HIV&AIDS programs, its contributions to reducing global HIV rates has been associated with long-term impacts resulting from HIV prevention education, behavior change, reducing stigma and discrimination and addressing complex economic risk and vulnerability factors. Formal education sector responses to HIV and AIDS are often perceived as slow and low impact approaches. This presentation will describe AIR’s work compiling and analyzing the evidence base, and will provide a synthesis of findings from the review of secondary sources. The resulting analysis will provide an important tool for policy makers and educators working to fund and design effective education and HIV&AIDS programs.

Abstract: HIV/AIDS, a globally wide-spread disease, is untreatable so far. Many studies have been focusing on HIV/AIDS stigmatization media coverage. Little research has been done to observe whether Internet discussion forums’ role in HIV/AIDS stigma generation. This study employs Link and Phelan’s stigma conceptualization to examine whether stigmatization of HIV/AIDS and people living with HIV/AIDS exists on the forum. Additionally, examining whether comments pose stigmatization completes the picture of Internet discussion forums and HIV/AIDS stigmatization.
