Integration of HIV/AIDS Information into School Curriculum and Textbooks in Mainstream Education in Bangladesh

In 2007, HIV/AIDS information was incorporated in the curriculum and textbooks of mainstream education at secondary and higher secondary level from grades VI to XII including madrasha (religious schools) and English version schools following the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) curriculum in Bangladesh.

Development of the curriculum and texts followed a bottom up approach with rigorous consultation and sharing with the concerned stakeholders at national, sub-national and community level.

The stakeholders at different levels included: policy makers, program managers, opinion leaders, religious leaders, media people, professionals, civil society, guardians, teachers and students.
