Title Combating HIV/AIDS: Preventative Work by Iringa Secondary Teachers
Author(s) Setthammar, Kristina Kristina
Date 2006
English abstract
The purpose of this qualitative thesis is to understand how and what teachers in Iringa Municipality, Tanzania, educate their students concerning HIV/AIDS in secondary school. Via the semi-structured interviews, observations as participant and my experiences, the study analyses why the education is carried out in a particular way and its weaknesses. The thesis concludes that the process is a hierarchy situation where the method used is mostly one-way transmission of the theoretical content. This is caused by many factors as for low amount and quality of input factors. Some of the teachers do not have any education on HIV/AIDS. There are also contextual factors affecting. One is poorly implemented policies. Other is the cultural factor where there is a great taboo and stigma in the culture hindering the teachers to teach about HIV/AIDS. The teachers need to be able to talk openly about sexuality, condoms, life skills in the context of HIV/AIDS.
