AIDS Education for Students in Cameroon



"It's Your Choice--A Vacation With or Without HIV/AIDS." Children get access to facts, not fiction, about how deadly diseases like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria are spread and prevented.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Only 24 out of 600 Lycées (government high schools) in the country have been equipped by the government. 95% of private establishments do not even own a personal computer. 97% of teachers do not have any computer skills. 90% of students graduate from high school without ever having seen or touched a computer in the classroom, in an economy where basic computer literacy is a prerequisite for all white-collar employment.

How will this project solve this problem?

Started in 2002, IEARN-SchoolNet-Cameroon Projects now reach 6,000 children each year with facts about health such as: “It’s Your Choice–A Vacation With or Without AIDS,” and encourages computer literacy.

Potential Long Term Impact

To reduce the transmission of AIDS, the iEARN-SchoolNet-Cameroon program aims to train teachers (now more than 200) to use computer technology.
