Schools and educational institutions

With close to 100 educational institutions in Africa, Jesuits and their co-workers come in contact with thousands of young people and are ideally placed to carry out HIV prevention. To avoid heaping “more of the same” information that their students get tired of hearing, schools, educational centres and university chaplaincies try to present the topic in a creative and relevant way and to incorporate it in a comprehensive approach to healthy development. Education for Life (EFL, EVA in French) programmes are a feature in many schools, as are anti-AIDS clubs. In Zimbabwe, the Jesuit AIDS Project (JAP) has started Youth Against AIDS (YAA) clubs in several schools by successfully using peer education, a methodology adopted by many others too. In 2011, AJAN worked on AHAPPY, a customised manual for HIV prevention for use in Jesuit institutions.
