Abstract

The assessment covered the type of information given, anatomical accuracy, gender depictions, and the social and religious values applied to issues of HIV/AIDS, reproductive health and sexuality. The most comprehensive book that provide detailed and progressive information on HIV/AIDS and reproductive health can be identified based on the scores provided by the authors. The study also considers the grade at which the information is provided and its appropriateness to children’s development stages. In explaining various ways to avoid transmission, many books reflect narrow conservative assumptions about behaviour and fail to mention safe sex strategies or the efficacy of condom use. Interestingly the gender depictions on HIV/AIDS information was minimal as compared with information on sexual harassment where women and girls were mostly described as causing such problem.
