We offer you a range of activities included in different teaching units on this page, as well as documentation to create a study on the degree of risk of infection to which young people in your school are exposed, helping students to carry out work on the subject of HIV and AIDS from a scientific viewpoint and simultaneously working on social, ethical and legal aspects.
The aim of this website is for IrsiCaixa researchers to spread their knowledge in order to promote the prevention of HIV infection through education. The main content that we are providing revolves around the following questions:
We also invite your students to contribute to the prevention of AIDS by facilitating the dissemination of this content. To do this, you can share it with your friends or even develop your own communication tools by creating PowerPoint presentations, videos or sculptures and disseminating these through our blog and in communities of interest in your area, both within and outside your educational centre.
You can also share your organisation of classroom activities with other educational centres through the blog. We would especially like to recommend a classroom activity on the transmission of HIV infection that was conducted at the Valerià Pujol i Bosch secondary school in Premià de Dalt.
In addition, the aim of IrsiCaixa is also to promote scientific careers, specifically in the area of HIV/AIDS, that will likewise contribute to the fight against HIV.

As a parallel activity, each educational centre can also organise a study on the degree of risk of infection to which their students expose themselves. The results can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can draw some general conclusions.DOCUMENTS TO CONDUCT THIS STUDY
