Culturally appropriate and gender-sensitive reporting on HIV and AIDS in the Caucasus Region 

This sub-regional training-of-trainers workshop will highlight socio-cultural issues such as traditions, beliefs, gender norms, practices and religions related to HIV and AIDS in order to improve skills in reporting on the pandemic within the region. 

It is organized within the framework of the UNESCO/Flanders Funds-in-Trust project “Culture and HIV and AIDS in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia” and is based on the project’s research phase.

The workshop will bring together four participants from each country and will utilize a new manual for media professionals on culturally sensitive and gender-responsive reporting on HIV and AIDS in the Caucasus region developed for this project.

The workshop is organized by UNESCO in collaboration with the BBC WST.
