"Integrating HIV/AIDS education into school curriculum HIV/AIDS awareness needs to be taught in the context of wider health education, according to practitioners. 'HIV/AIDS education is not something isolated. Its all about avoiding risky behaviour, learning healthy life skills and decision making, which are not only responsible for HIV/AIDS but can cause several other physical and mental disorders,' Naureen Butt, programme officer at the Aga Khan Education Services Pakistan (AKESP) told IRIN from southern port city of Karachi, capital of Sindh province, on Friday."
