    Implementation process review of the "Training of Teachers Manual on Preventive Education against HIV / AIDS in the School Setting".

    Girault P

    [Paris, France], UNESCO, Internal Oversight Service, Evaluation Section, 2003 Aug. 50 p. (IOS/EVS/PI/33)

    At a recent review workshop in Uzbekistan and elsewhere concerns have been raised that the manual is too strictly focused on transferring biomedical knowledge and does not pay enough attention to reducing vulnerability to HIV/AIDS by promoting lifeskills. It is also believed that the HIV information in the manual needs to be updated, and that the inclusion of teaching of more participatory training techniques could be considered. In addition, in some countries, a strict focus on HIV/AIDS is not realistic - embedding HIV/AIDS in a wider school-health approach should be considered. Before expanding to other countries, UNESCO decided then to do a review of the progress implementation of the "Preventive Education against HIV/AIDS in the School Setting" project and a review of the manual. The particular interest of this review is to look at the way that the project was implemented and to review the manual based on the comments generated by the targeted countries. Its overall aim is to generate recommendations both on the content of the manual and the implementation process, before expanding to other countries covered by UNESCO Bangkok. (excerpt)

    Protocol. Femshield Acceptability Study (pilot phase).

    Mahidol University. Siriraj Family Planning Research Center

    [Unpublished] 1989 Feb. 3, [9] p.

    The Siriraj Family Planning (FP) Research Center in Bangkok, Thailand has developed a protocol to conduct acceptability studies of the female condom Femshield. The study aims to assess participants' attitudes towards this new contraceptive which also protects against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Since barrier method use (condom and vaginal spermicide) is low in Thailand, the center has introduced the WHO supplied Femshield to increase protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). 3 advantages of Femshield are it allows free movement of the penis; can be inserted before intercourse; and protects the perineum (where lesions may exist), urethra (an entrance of infection), and the roots of the penis. The Femshield is made of a polyurethane sac (dimensions 8 cm x 15.5 cm; .045 mm thickness) with a removable internal ring to help in insertion and an external ring to hold it in place. The study should include 10-15 sexually active women from each FP clinic who currently use a contraceptive method, are either married or living with a male partner, are willing to participate, and whose willing partners will complete a questionnaire after use. 1st FP personnel will use a screening form to ask each current user of any FP method her attitude based on her perception of Femshield and to participate in the study. Once she decides to participate, she formally consents. A FP worker then uses an admission form to interview her. She next receives 5 Femshields, verbal instruction on how to use them, and a small instructional manual. A FP worker interviews her during the 1 month follow up (follow up form). Study workers send a questionnaire to the partner (husband's form) with instructions to complete the form and return it to the FP clinic. Researchers use the 4 completed forms to analyze the data. (The protocol includes copies of all the standardized forms.)
