The Bernard van Leer Foundation has recently published a new issue of its Early Childhood Development working paper series. This new working paper, Young children, HIV/AIDS and gender: A summary review, explores how to use the early years to lay the foundations for HIV/AIDS prevention.
This paper aims to kick-start a debate on an underexplored issue: ways in which attitudes towards gender that are inculcated in the early tears can play a significant role in creating behaviours in later life that influence the spread of HIV and AIDS.
The World Bank published a paper in its Youth Development Notes series earlier this year on how early childhood development can help to prevent risky behaviour during adolescence and young adulthood. This paper seeks to focus this issue specifically on gender socialisation in early childhood and HIV and AIDS prevention in adult life.
