Abstract

The global concern and the recent scourge of HIV & AIDS brought to the fore the urgent implementation of the Reproductive Health and HIV & AIDS curriculum in the Teacher Education programmes at all the levels of education in Nigeria. This paper, therefore examined the prevalence of HIV & AIDS, the objectives and rationale for the implementation of reproductive health and HIV & AIDS. Also, the paper highlighted the Federal Government and UNICEF (B-field) initiatives on HIV & AIDS and the roles of health educators in the implementation of the reproductive health and HIV & AIDS curriculum in the Teacher Education programmes in Nigeria. It was therefore recommended that the curriculum on Reproductive health and HIV & AIDS constructed and vetted by experts should be implemented in all the Teacher education programmes in Nigeria.
