Ruth Gwandure earned her master of science degree in medicine (bioethics and law) from the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. Her research and consulting fields include bioethics, health law, environmental bioethics, research ethics, HIV and AIDS, ethics and law, clinical ethics, and HIV counselling and testing in schools. Calvin Gwandure has a PhD in psychology. He graduated from Nelson Mandela University, South Africa. His research and consulting fields include HIV and AIDS prevention, new HIV prevention technologies, HIV risk behavior, and group behavior. Clinical trials on HIV and AIDS prevention face challenges associated with infection of participants with HIV and sexually transmitted infections. Participants also experience adverse events associated with voluntary medical male circumcision and the use of microbicides and vaccines in clinical trials. The results obtained from clinical trials investigating the efficacy of microbicides and vaccines in preventing HIV infection are disappointing, but there is hope that one day a breakthrough could be made. Clinical trials on voluntary medical male circumcision and preexposure prophylaxis have shown positive results that warranted approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The major challenge experienced in new HIV prevention clinical trials that are underway and in approved interventions that are being scaled up apparently relates to HIV incidence that threatens the social value and scientific validity of the interventions. Paradoxically, the clinical trials and scale-up interventions have become the new sources of HIV infection although the hypothesized benefit to be realized in the end is conceptualized as outweighing the current risks involved.

The education sector plays a key external role in preventing and reducing the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS. It also plays an important internal role in providing access to care, treatment, and support for teachers and education staff, a group that in many countries represents more than 60 percent of the public sector workforce. The education sector can also have a critically important positive effect on the future: Even in the worst-affected countries, most schoolchildren are not infected. For these children, there is a chance to live lives free from AIDS if they can be educated on the knowledge and values that can protect them as they grow up. The authors of 'Accelerating the Education Sector Response to HIV' explore the experiences of education sectors across Sub-Saharan Africa as they scale up their responses to HIV/AIDS within the Accelerate Initiative Working Group, established in 2002 by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Inter-Agency Task Team on Education. This book demonstrates that leadership by the ministries of education and commitment from key development partners are crucial for mobilizing activities and that full participation of all stakeholders is required for effective implementation. This book summarizes the experiences of technical Focal Points from the 37 ministries of education in Sub-Saharan Africa, which are represented on the sub-regional networks for HIV and Education. These experiences prove that the education sector response can play a crucially important role in the multisectoral national responses to this epidemic.

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Art - Pedagogy, , course: Art - Visual arts general, stylistics, Literature, language: English, abstract: Art is in museums, well protected by walls of critics, ready to rebuke any curious uninformed person about art. Awe and respect are the attitudes required to look at a piece of art; to appreciate its value, one may need knowledge related to history and aesthetics. The cult of the sacred has for long dominated artistic thought to the extent that when people now hear the word ‘art’, they are afraid to advance any argument in fear to displease the initiated. With such received ideas, art has become more distant to people. The idea that Tolstoy aimed to disseminate about art as constituting the bridge between people’s feelings sounds unfeasible at present. The universality that art could demonstrate lingered in museums visited by people from here and there. Such ideas hampered students from getting in touch with works that could offer them other ways of looking and construing the world around them. Alexandre Blok (1906), a Russian painter once said that “painting teaches one how to look and how to see” (p. 24). Indeed, to look, to see, to perceive, and to observe are different ways of appreciating any work of art. Looking at a picture and pondering about its meaning is observing its traits and perceiving its artistry. Verbs related to sight often entail examination, inspection, scrutiny, study, and appraise. Whether the viewer is initiated to visual literacy or not, the picture grabs his or her attention and impels understanding. No matter how simple or sophisticated the result is, the act is nonetheless productive. Pictures provoke thoughts as words do. Their judicious use in literature teaching may enhance the interpretive abilities of students. This thesis postulates that the use of visual art in the literature class can enhance students’ understanding of literary works and movements. It can also trigger imagery and therefore generate interpretations. However, it is important to underline the word ‘use’ in contrast with the word ‘study’. This thesis is mainly concerned with the use of images in literature teaching and learning, but not with the study of images as the latter is often subsumed under an art syllabus. This study analyzes images against works of literature with the purpose of facilitating understanding, spurring imagery, and therefore generating interpretations. Therefore literature is the main focus of study but not art.[...]
