The Rights of Children Infected and Affected by HIV/AIDS: Trainers’ handbook
Resource Author: Ann Strode, Kitty Barrett Grant
The trainers’ handbook is designed for trainers who conduct training (pre-service and in-service) for service providers working with children and youth infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. The handbook is intended for use by trainers from all sectors, such as health, welfare and education, and from both Government and Non-Governmental Organisations.The 4 training modules aim to:
- Raise awareness of the rights of children and youth, particularly as they relate to HIV/AIDS;
- Develop an understanding of the ways in which children’s and youth’s rights are abused in the context of HIV and AIDS; and
- Enhance the capacity of children and youth, their care givers and service providers to recognise and realise these rights and to respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in a rights based manner.
