Teachers and HIV
Stepping Stones with teachers
Stepping Stones has been used with teachers in different contexts. The best documented example is from Malawi.
“TIWOLOKE (Stepping Stones) is a workplace-focused behaviour change model targeting primary school teachers in Malawi’s education system. Implemented since 2006 by ActionAid in Malawi with support from Malawi’s National AIDS Commission and the UK’s Department for International Development (DfID), the intervention has reached 7,600 teachers in its first phase. TIWOLOKE has also supported the development of T’LIPO, the country’s first national network of teachers living positively with HIV and AIDS, which has recruited 2, 500 teachers since June 2007. This progress report presents and discusses the model, the response from teachers and analyses dynamics in the education workplace as a result of access to treatment, increasing disclosure and new forms of leadership in the response to HIV and AIDS.” Extract from TIWOLOKE report (see below)
