3. Sample letter to parents

Dear parent/guardian,

Our school is starting a new programme on AIDS education. Your child will learn about AIDS and how to protect him or herself from getting this terrible disease, and other sexually transmitted diseases.

AIDS is a problem in our country, and young people are at risk of getting infected. They need information and skills in order to avoid getting infected. Education about sex and AIDS does not encourage young people to have sex; rather it makes them realize the risks involved and enables them to make responsible decisions about delaying sex or protecting themselves. Studies have shown that this kind of education is most effective if given before young people become sexually active.

Your interest and support in these activities will be most valuable. If you have any questions about the programme do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

(Name of school director, teacher, or secretary of school board)
