UNESCO presents the HIV/AIDS Virtual Information Centre for Latin America

The UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean, in collaboration with the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning, has established the first Spanish language portal on HIV and AIDS in Latin America. The website is available at hivaidsclearinghouse.unesco.org
Within the framework of the United Nations’ response to HIV and AIDS, this UNESCO project aims to facilitate access to information and to disseminate existing knowledge. Users will be able to access information as well as share their knowledge and experiences with others.

By education and HIV and AIDS, UNESCO means offering learning opportunities for all to develop the knowledge, skills, competencies, behaviours and attitudes that will limit the vulnerability to HIV and mitigate the impact of the pandemic. UNESCO also means, through improved HIV- and AIDS-specific policies and planning, to limit the impact of AIDS on the education sector, thereby preserving the core functions of education systems.
