This work is grounded in to the fact that, there are notable and significant investment by the ministries and partners around life skills-based HIV, SRH & GBV education (CSE) in both primary and secondary schools, and yet, information about the efficacy and results of ongoing interventions is limited. This survey will help gathering information and provided evidence as well as clear picture of the situation (changes made at individual level) in terms of knowledge, risk perception and reported practices of learners after being exposed to education related programs in school setting. Furthermore, it will help the MoEST to measure the results of ESDP around this area, provide MoHCDGEC with baseline information needed for the SHSP and inform UNESCO with regards to the outcome of EHW programs.


Many partners have been working to support the government efforts and initiatives in particular implementation of school-based LS, SRH, HIV and GBV (CSE) programs that are in line with the ESDP, SHSP and NAIA. Over the period of 5 years, UNESCO through the EHW has intensified its efforts in particular initiatives aiming at scaling-up provision of quality, age & culturally appropriate life skills-based SRH, HIV and GBV (CSE) education through intra-curriculum & extra-curriculum. UNESCO support ranges from policy dialogues, capacity building (targeting teachers, curriculum developers, media practitioners and programmers), and development of curriculum support materials, strengthening coordination, monitoring & evaluation and generating evidences around school-based health interventions.

Investing in the education and health of children and adolescents is also essential to realize the potential benefits of the demographic dividend. Reports on education statistics (produced annually) in Tanzania show that many schools are reported to provide CSE, this is encouraging achievement that assumed to have positive impact in terms of knowledge, risk perception and positive health behaviour.


OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

b) Teachers/Patrons/Matrons


e) Any other relevant and justifiable group of respondents
