IL est important de prendre

    IL est important de prendre en compte dans les débats thématiques l'éducation Préventive VIH et SIDA en milieu scolaires. er faire la corrélation entre la santé sexuelle et réproductive et le VIH et SIDA. Ces aspects ne doivent pas rester en marge.

Le Cameroun à travers un fiancement de la Banque Africaine de Développement a mis en place en la matière un programme assez intéressant axès sur le développement curriculaire, l'enseignement du VIH et Sida et les questions de santé de la réproduction.


Cameroon is among the countries in Africa worst affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In 2009, nearly 5, 1 percent of adults 15 to 49 years old were infected. Data from INDEXMUNDI ( suggest that Cameroon may have in 2011, some 610.000 people living with HIV/AIDS.


The National AIDS Control Program has been in place since 2000. HIV/AIDS prevention programs have been introduced throughout the education system for teacher trainees, teachers and schoolchildren, including anti-AIDS clubs and peer-led education approaches. Effort has also sought to reach children outside the formal education sector through many associations.

Government and nongovernment programs are targeting youth on HIV and other reproductive health matters, HIV/AIDS counseling for teachers and other educational personnel is envisaged.

Cameroon AIDS action program for schools initiated by the ministry of basic and secondary education targets students and teachers in all primary, normal and secondary schools in attempt to develop their problem solving, decision-making and risk averting skills. More than 4170 teachers have been trained; the program possesses textbooks (curricula) and learning materials; and has the full support of the Ministry of Basic and Secondary education, UNESCO. Sponsoring and Technical partners: Ministry of Public Health, UNESCO, African Development Bank, ONUSIDA, World Bank, International Bureau of Education/UNESCO.

Cher Warren..


Au Comité Scientifique et Technique de la Conférence de Génève je viens vous faire partager cette proposition innovante afin que vous l'étudiez et l'intégriez dans les actes prioritaires de la Conférence ; à savoir :

"La Mise en Place en Afrique d'un Programme Régional de Formation en Communication pour la Santé et le Développement".

Ce Programme de formation doit etre conçu de manière sous-régionale. Exemple.:

  1. Conakry pour le Programme de formation de la région Afrique de l'Ouest.

    1. Brazaville pour le Programme de formation de la région Afrique Centrale.

    3 Dar-es Salam pour le Programme de formation de la Région Afrique Australe et de l'Est..

Le bit à assigner au Programme est de renforcer les capacités nationales à concevoir , mettre en oeuvre et évaluer les projets et activités de Communication en Santé. Le Programme doit permettre d'obténir dans les pays une équipe de cadres nationaux formés en Communication pour la Santé et capables d'encadrer les projets, les associations et autres organisations locales engagées dans la lutte contre la maladie et la promotion du bien etre.familial

Le Programme doit permettre l'établissement d'une capacité institutionnelle au niveau régional à offrir des formations de courte durée en Communication pour la Santé adaptées aux réalités nationales.



 MY Thematic Contribution.

                                  RETHINKING THE ROLE OF THE MEDIA.

Media’s ability to interpret public health/development objectives into Media’s objectives and action. To mobilize community to act to live HIV free, the Medias needs to act as advocates for the provision of services, opportunities, and societal support that will facilitate appropriate action among community. Ensuring and facilitating youth access to condoms is but one of these. This requires a rethinking of the media’s role, and developing new strategies to ensure that they may indeed consider adopting such a role. This role was also: - To encourage positives values ; - Integral to social, economic, political development ; - To educate, entertain, inform, empower people ; - To give the community a voice-issue-aired, needs known. Some non- governmental organization and governments consider the media’s first duty to act as health educators persuading the public to change their sexual behavior. Some media professionals, such as health columnists welcome such a role<; Many other believe that the media’s first responsibility is to provide the public with facts about the broader issues relating to the disease and the response to it. In Africa, media have done a remarkable job in reporting HIV and AIDS. They are captured the spread, the threat and the effect. Moving tales of devastation have been written, powerful images of courage and struggle have been caught on television. Radio programmers have educated individual and communities about risky behavior and how to avoid infection. There are still millions of people who have not been fully exposed to information that can help avoid infection or deal with reality of being infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, and, many journalists still do not have the tools, techniques and information needed to effectively report on HIV/AIDS. There is a growing need for journalist and communication professionals with experience of social issues in the health matter, HIV/AIDS, health and development, life sciences. Academics in the field of communication are involved whenever policy makers are collaboratively developing a new program on Health-Communication and Development. This new programme aims to deliver academically equipped communication professionals who are capable of analyzing and facilitating communication on a strategic level. The programme focuses on communication around major societal themes such as health and development. FOUSSENOU SISSOKO. COMMUNICATION-HEALTH AND HIV/AIDS EXPERT.
