  1. Supporting children’s rights through education, the arts and the media (SCREAM)

    01 January 2007

    This special module on HIV, AIDS and Child Labour is designed to plug into the SCREAM pack for use by educators around the world. It is intended to be adaptable and appropriate for any geographical and cultural context and in any formal or informal setting. This module is aimed particularly at adolescents reaching the threshold of adulthood; an age where they are soon to be relied upon as responsible global citizens as well as an age of acute vulnerability to the dangers of HIV, and exploitation of their rights. However, the material can also be very beneficial for a range of age groups, from the age of ten up to adult education. With younger children, the educator must take care in selecting and adapting the activities to cater for their capabilities and intellectual level.

  16. Global reach: how trade unions are responding to AIDS

    01 January 2006

    The report is the result of an unprecedented joint campaign launched by global union federations in 2003 which aims to mobilize union members worldwide in the response to AIDS. This report provides an overview of how trade unions are responding to the challenges of AIDS. It presents 11 case studies from around the world which show the breadth of action by trade unions in responding to the HIV epidemic. The 11 case studies show how trade union members, many of whom are deeply affected by the epidemic, are mounting bold imaginative responses to HIV in the workplace: challenging stigma and discrimination, addressing the factors that increase vulnerability and risk, providing care and treatment, educating their members on prevention, and building worldwide coalitions that lobby governments for more robust commitments to responding effectively to the disease.
