Educating a new generation

We want young people to have a better understanding of the realities of living with HIV and to know how to protect themselves from infection.

We've therefore produced a practical resource for teachers providing suggestions on how to integrate HIV into the national curriculum for different subjects within key stages three and four.  It includes lesson plans, ideas for assemblies and HIV fact sheets.

Sections of our HIV in Schools pack are available to download below.

Other resources

Positive? Attitudes to and Awareness of HIV

In collaboration with NAT, The International Planned Parenthood Federation has produced an additional resource for teachers: 'Positive? Attitudes to and Awareness of HIV.'  The resource cuts across four curriculum focus areas: Science, English/Media, Citizenship and PSHE and is available to download here. The resource is free to all UK schools and has a downloadable iphone/android app and a game at www.learningpositive.com/game/

Angels in America

NAT, Headlong Theatre and the Lyric Hammersmith have produced an education pack for schools exploring some of the questions raised by the Pulitzer Prize winning play Angels in America.

The aim of this resource is to engage young people on subjects including HIV and homophobia through the medium of drama, and to encourage debate and discussion on the issues raised by Angels in America. The education pack is available free of charge to all secondary schools and can be downloaded here.
