Abstract

BackgroundConsidering the significant impact of school-based HIV-AIDS education, in 2007, a curriculum on HIV-AIDS was incorporated in the national curriculum for high school students of Bangladesh through the Government’s HIV-prevention program. Based on the curriculum, an intervention was designed to train teachers responsible for teaching HIV-AIDS in classes.

MethodsIn-depth interviews were conducted with teachers to understand their ability, skills, and confidence in conducting HIV-AIDS classes. Focus-group discussions FGDs were conducted with students who participated in HIV-AIDS classes. HIV-AIDS classes were also observed in randomly-selected schools. Thematic assessment was made to analyze data.

ResultsThe findings showed that the trained teachers were more comfortable in using interactive teaching methods and in explaining sensitive issues to their students in HIV-AIDS classes. They were also competent in using interactive teaching methods and could ensure the participation of students in HIV-AIDS classes.

ConclusionsThe findings suggest that cascading training may be scaled up as it helped increase ability, skills, and confidence of teachers to successfully conduct HIV-AIDS classes.
