    "Gender inequalities in society are driving aspects of the HIV epidemic, and this is particularly the case in the education sector. Work to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS in educational settings can be empowering, however, and bring about change." "Gender Equality, HIV, and AIDS explains and illustrates some of the key arguments and debates in the education sector by: examining different expectations of what HIV education programmes and education settings can do to transform unequal gender relations, protect young people against HIV and AIDS, and contribute to care for those affected and infected; warning that an uncritical acceptance that education is a 'social vaccine' protecting young people from HIV infection can be misleading; demonstrating that, to be effective, HIV and AIDS education must be based on a sensitive unders tanding of social and cultural context and the complexities of young people's lives; illustrating the importance of democratic learning environments informed by evidence-based policy, implemented with strong leadership for transforming deeply held values and beliefs regarding sexual behaviour and sexuality." "Gender Equality, HIV, and AIDS features research and case studies from academics, NGOs, and donor organisations in Africa and South-East Asia."--BOOK JACKET.
