Percentage of primary and secondary schools where life-skills-based HIV education is taught
What it measures

Life skills is an effective, education methodology, which uses participatory exercises to teach behaviours to young people that help them deal with the challenges and demands of everyday life. It can include decision-making and problem-solving skills, creative and critical thinking, self-awareness, communication and interpersonal relations. It can also teach young people how to cope with their emotions and causes of stress. When adapted specifi cally for HIV education in schools, a life-skills approach helps young people understand and assess the individual, social and environmental factors that raise and lower the risk of HIV transmission. When properly implemented, it can have a positive impact on behaviours, including delay in sexual debut and reduction in number of sexual partners.
