Policy Documentation on Ethics and Harassment
Ethics refers to standards of conduct, standards that indicate how one should behave based on spiritual and moral duties and virtues, which themselves are derived from principles of right and wrong. It is a code of values which guide our choices and actions and determine the purpose and course of our lives. Ethics can also be considered as the moral standards by which people judge behaviour. It can be summed up in what is termed the “golden rule”—do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Policy Documentation on HIV/AIDS
The HIV/AIDS pandemic poses a serious threat to all nations especially those of sub-Saharan Africa including Nigeria. According to UNAIDS recent estimation, almost 16,000 new infections occur every day in the world, 90% of which occur in Africa. Among these new cases, 50-60% is young people. More importantly is the threat of this deadly disease to the life of young persons in Nigeria. The prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria rose steadily from 1.8% in 1992 to 2.2% in 1994, 4.5 in 1996, 5.4% 1999, and 5.8% in 2001. The figure for 2003 and 2005 were 5.0% and 4.4% respectively. Recent findings show that youths ate the most infected in Nigeria, with rates higher than 4.4% obtained in the general population. For example, 4.7% percent for those aged 20-24 years and 4.9% for those aged 25-29 years. This shows that youths are a vulnerable group. They also constitute the highest percentage of the populations in tertiary institutions including Covenant University.
