Teachers want to know learners’ HIV status

185

School authorities in Zomba have raised eyebrows after they requested parents whose kids are HIV positive to notify the teachers about their children’s status. HIV test

The school authorities  made the request after concerns from teachers that learners who are HIV positive may find it hard to cope with their status  hence they may need special treatment in class.

Speaking during a memorial ceremony organised by Zomba City Council, deputy headteacher for Satima Primary School Elizabeth Nsutseni said children who are living with HIV need special treatment.

She claimed that when the teachers are aware of the children’s status, it can be easy for them to help the children in class.

“It is important for us teachers to know the status of the learners so that we should be able to give them the special treatment they deserve,” she said.

Nsutseni argued that it can be hard for the teachers to identify and help the children if no proper communication has been made to them.

She then pledged that her school will introduce some activities that will help HIV positive children to cope with their status so that they should focus on their studies.

  1. People Living with HIV, People with Disability, People with Albinism don’t need any special treatment. All they want is equal rights and justice. They don’t want your sympathy or mercy, they just want to be treated like what they are – human beings.

  7. just for the fact the teachers or schools wants to introduce speacial programs for the pupils with HIV to me it sounds like its no longer a free learning place but a place of isolation and discrimination.. u think a child wud not wonder why??? and what about those pupils around the victim? let’s not all act like we don’t know the life at school.. come on I don’t think this makes sense.. even in the USA I have never heard of such a thing. our constitution rights states everyone has a right to privacy.. UnleSs am told that this right is subject or object to some other pipo. MALAWi USALOLERE.

  9. Mungotukwana mphunzitsi wosalakwa, issue imeneyi yabwera ndi a certain International Organisation through Malawi government not teachers. Mphunzitsi angotsunga ma records amene akuzifuna ndi a boma. Malawi24 muzifufuza kaye before posting your stories

  10. Unfair decision,it can only promote discrimination and school dropouts.Its not good idea everyone has the right to keep it to himself or tell the public about his or her body status.We parents we want to know about our teacher statusses too before they come to know about the status of our children.

  11. Guys osamangotukwana here! Du u kno dat a teacher z a full parent 2 a learner hav u ever tink kuti makolo hw many hours spend with their chilldren ulin a year??? In ur calculus u will find out dat almost a teacher spend with more tym with alearner dan his parents and a teacher knows almost 80% percent of a child problem dan his parents! Learners perfomance z affected by many factors and one of dem is pyschological problem! So du u tink if a learner z pyschologically affected due 2 dat AIDS a teacher cant assist dat learner?? Guys ur tinking wrongly teaching z a noble professional it can fit almost in more fields u can tink of! Anthu ku college amaphunzira special needs education pamene teachers learn more about eye and ear problems and hw dey can assist learners of such problems so jst because of dat can u say teachers r doctors??? Ndayankhula izi cz ene ake said teachers asiye uphunzitsi ndikukapanga za u doctor bt let me tell u teachers amaphunzira zambiri even zakuchipatalazo cz ana amene amaphunzitsidwa ndamene amadwalaso so they learn part of it and hw dey can identify and assist! And zikakhala za AIDS du u kno dat teachers amaphunzira HIV counselling???? Bt nt testing only counselling! Nde pliz osamangonyoza here as if u kno anyting about teachers! Mphunzitsi kudziwa vuto la mwana zimathandiza mawana uja cz a teacher knows hw best he can assist dat learners an amongst all mwana amamsukira aphunzitsi ake than her parents take it or leave it!” teachers r foolish because they are wise! Only when u realise dat geting advice from teachers is wise and important dats when a great man u will be” tisanyoze aphunzitsi guys pliz!!!!!!!!

  12. Zikuyenela kutelo coz azibambo ambiri akumakonda kugonana ndi ana a xool nayo ananso sakukana n akukopeka ndi ndalama mwana nzao sakumamufuna ati poti naye amakapepha xool fiz sangawapatse kalikonse

  13. Zikuonetsa kuti ambiri amene mukutukwana pano muli positive. The bad thing is that enafe tadziwa nawo kuti muli positive chifukwa cha ma emotions amene mwaonetsa kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  14. There is no point to know somebody’s status. Its out of place because being HIV positive does not require special treatment in class. Moreover, its not you are always weak unless you are suffering from an illness with is also the same case with those who are negative.

  15. How is that any of their business? Instead of concentrating on what they applied for (Teaching) they want to be busy with things that doesn’t concern them, after that they will use HIV positive children as there examples in class?That’s nonsense

  16. I see it not being neccessary for them(teachers)to know their learners status,unless they can undergo training on how to handle these issues of HIV counceling,for the secrets of these learners to be kept

  17. Akatele awa ndi aziphunzitsi a primary, they always think primarily…..zitsilu za anthu, mpake amakupasani malipilo ochepa….i thought amakulakwilani koma no, basi muzilandila ma 30 omwewo akapolo inu……..muja mumawachitila nkhanza ana muja oti simukudziwa za status yawo what more mukadziwa? Nonses

    • can’t believe you just said that poorly baked comment about primary school teachers, they’re nobody’s slaves. i personally think that knowing the pupils HIV status is wrong for there are some people who’ll take advantage of that, but calling them like this is purely wrong, unreasonable & stupid!! not them, next time you would like to comment check that your senses aren’t malfunctioning again

    • U also in that group, i said so coz i was once a pupil at one of the government schools and i knw there behavious, i cant pull my words back, they are really stupid and foolish and if u are one of the teachers then consider yourself stupid as well..thankyou

  19. Thats rubish, how can u wish to know someone’s status without his/her concern. You want to sleep with them u pervets. Can’t u have something to do than this. How is it going to affect yo job as a teacher. Thats why u are paid late because u think like kids.

  20. Nthawi mukuchedwa ndi zopanda mchereyi muzailira…inuyo mukhare pansi nkukambirana zomwe mungachite kuti malipiro anu azibwera nthawi yabwino…koma zomwe mukukamba apazi nzongokomera maphunzitsi a gwamura ncholinga mwana akakhara negative azimuonongera tsogolo basi #ndendende

  22. because teachers like sleeping with, pupils /students, so they want to take chaces by knowing their status who is clean, they must go to hell. always HIV status remains confidential .

  26. This lady is very insane beyond reasonable doubt!
    How can you talk of someone’s status while yours is hidden!
    If you want to introduce such initiative, why don’t you start with yourself? And she stands there opening her mouth up as if she is a Saint!
    Is she fully aware of the repercussions that might follow if such sick idea if hers hits the ground?
    This notion is a total discriminatory not only to the learners,but to the parents as well!
    It infringes the Right to Privacy!

  27. haha by revealing the kid’s status the parents will also be revealing theirs. I think that explains why people here are pissed off by this.

  28. Wayambisa is ndi garu, stupid ediot. Mukafuna siyani ya uphunzisi mukayambe ya u doctor alukhu inu. Dont take it for granted that is joa it can come to an end, and be a teacher it doesnt mean that u can dictate other peoples lives, actualy who come up with this damn isue. Ndisazimveso!!!

  31. Hello I’m Samuel Okizou by name, I’m giving a testimony about Dr.Sule the great Herbalist, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my HIV disease, though I went through different website I saw different testimonies about different herbalists, I was like: “Many people have the HIV cure why are people still suffering from it?” I thought of it, then I contact Dr.Sule via email, I didn’t believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared the CURE and sent it to me via UPS courier service, they told me that it will take 3-4 days before I’ll get the parcel, 3 days later I received the package and I started taking the medicine as prescribed by him, after 7 days of taking the medicine I went for check-up, I was tested HIV NEGATIVE… IF YOU ARE SERIOUS YOU WILL BE CURED!!! contact Dr Sule on whats-app +2348162447651.
