1. NEW HIGHLIGHT: "Girl Power: The Impact of Girls' Education on HIV
And Sexual Behaviour"
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Girl Power: The Impact of Girls' Education on HIV And Sexual Behaviour
- This is the title of a recent publication by ActionAid International,
in its Education and HIV Series. In this systematic review of over
600 pieces of research on girls' education, sexual behaviour and HIV,
ActionAid has shown that secondary education provides African girls with
the power to make sexual choices that prevent HIV infection. The
situation is the same in many other countries as well, from India to the Far
East and in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Education gives girls power, reduces vulnerability and helps them make
more independent, confident choices about their sexual behaviour. The
report shows that schools and teachers are the most trusted sources for
young people to learn about HIV, and that school attendance ensures
greater understanding of prevention messages.

Peer group solidarity within school strengthens girls' social networks
and creates more responsible attitudes to sexual behaviour, safer sex
and HIV. Conversely, girls who drop out of school are more likely to
enter into adult sexual networks, where older partners with more
experience and power dictate the "rules" of sexual engagement.

Poverty and vulnerability to HIV are closely linked. More educated
women have better economic and social prospects and consequently have more
choices. Girls educated to secondary and tertiary levels are more
likely to wait before having sex, are much more likely to use condoms when
they do have sex, and are therefore at much less risk of contracting
HIV.

Some Member comments:

a. ICT knowledge will empower women silently.The modern age demands
functional
power of women rather than only notional literacy.

DR.PRABIR Dutta (India) Date posted: Sep 20, 2006 01:34 AM

b. I am happy to see that women's education is part of the equation for
sustainable
development to reduce poverty. Education will empower the women of
the developing
countries and free them from all sorts of slavery they have endured
for centuries.

Stanley Chassagne (Canada) Date posted: Sep 11, 2006 05:28 PM


c. Denial of education for a girl is akin to denial for freedom;
psychologically,
economically, physical and in any sphere of life. Educating them is
freeing them,as
they will become independent and self-dependent.
