Description du stage : The current partnership project between Niagara College and the Walter Sisulu University (WSU) is a five year, Sustainable Skills Development (SSD) project, aimed at increasing employability skills of the participants through skills based training opportunities. With a program/project priority on HIV/AIDS education, the HIV/AIDS - IO will assist WSU in developing and delivering HIV/AIDS education within the surrounding East London Community.

The reality of such high percentages of graduating students being HIV positive has lead the University and community to address this issue beyond the school setting. Through the Border Kei Chamber of Business, the WSU has started an HIV project for small businesses to conduct programming in VCT, educational awareness and research in order to holistically approach HIV within their community.

With a program priority on the social mitigation of HIV/AIDS, the HIV/AIDS - CIO will actively assist WSU and The Chamber of Business in the integration of existing HIV policies and additional HIV/AIDS education into the East London community. The main objectives of the placement will be to increase HIV awareness of available options (Treatment, testing, counseling, support, etc.) while also addressing common HIV myths. The main target areas within the community will be local businesses, and any identified main employers of WSU graduates. The IO will:
- Assess existing HIV/AIDS policies - at the WSU and at the community level
- Research and develop HIV/AIDS related educational materials
- Assist the WSU HIV/AIDS team in the delivery of HIV/AIDS curriculum within University activities
- Provide HIV/AIDS sensitivity and awareness training to community businesses
- Encourage "mainstreaming" (or policy enforcement/development) of HIV/AIDS related information into their practices.
Organisation d'accueil : Walter Sisulu University
Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil : Strategically located within the Eastern Cape, WSU straddles a vast spectrum of the urban and rural divide of the region.

It is envisaged that WSU will be a strong, vibrant and viable institution with a host of investment and growth opportunities for research and development partnerships between the academic, governmental, non-governmental and corporate environments.
