HIV/AIDS and Education: A Strategic Approach

By DFID, EDC (C. Vince Whitman and I. Birdthistle), Education International, European Commission, ILO, UNESCO, UNAIDS, UNDCP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, USAID, WHO, and World Bank

As a member of UNAIDS Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT), EDC contributed to IATTís policy and this practice framework document. The paper presents an overview of the relationship between HIV/AIDS and the education sector. It looks at what is known about the epidemicís impact on education; examines use of educational settings to promote understanding, attitudes, and behaviours to limit risk of infection; assesses the use of education to promote respect, care, and support for those infected and affected by the epidemic; and sets forth policy questions that must be addressed.
