|Abstract: ||Background: HIV/AIDS mainstreaming is the process of analyzing how
HIV/AIDS impacts on sectors now and in to future, both internally and
externally, to determine how sector should respond based on its
comparative advantage. Though it is underpins the current approaches, to
date research has not shown influencing factors on the process.
Methods: A qualitative study in the education sector was conducted in Addis
Ababa from January to February 2006 to explore factors influencing
effective HIV mainstreaming. The data collection employs in-depth
interview and FGD using discussion guide; review of documents, annual
plans and reports of the education bureau; and observation of schools.
Data analysis was done manually and using open code computer
Result: The development of life skill manual and inculcation of HIV/AIDS into
curriculum are some of the efforts against HIV/AIDS in education system.
Lack of understanding on the concept of HIV mainstreaming, failure to
develop and use resource at all level, poor involvement of stakeholders
and inability to monitor the issue with in the system are factors that
influences effective HIV mainstreaming.
Conclusion: In the education system though efforts against the HIV/AIDS
epidemic exist, HIV mainstreaming is not achieved to the fullest owing to
poor conceptualization and applicability of the process.
Recommendation: HAPCO should provide a clear guidance for effective HIV
mainstreaming and then develop tracking mechanisms to recognize
progress. Sector should take HIV/AIDS as a priority activity and ensure
availability of resources.|
