HIV cannot be passed on through kissing, touching, spitting, coughing or sneezing.
HIV - which causes AIDS - can be transmitted through body fluids, in particular blood, semen, vaginal secretions and breast milk.
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.
For World AIDS Day 2015 (1 December) we published a new assembly plan on HIV in the UK today.

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.
