Presidential Initiative on AIDS Strategy for Communication to Youths
The Presidential Imitative on AIDS Strategy for Communication to Youths (PIASCY) addresses comprehensive sex education in schools. It helps both teachers and learners to guard against sexuality related challenges such as defilement, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, indecent assault and HIV/AIDS. However, this intervention is treated by teachers as an additional workload and it is therefore not given the appropriate attention and implementation as expected. The author recommends that PIASCY be incorporated into the national school programmes as part and parcel of the education curriculum.
