Overview. Good Policy and Practice in HIV & AIDS and Education. Booklet 1
Attawell, Kathy; Elder, Katharine
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)
This booklet is the first in a series of publications that address key themes of UNESCO's work on HIV & AIDS and the education sector. It provides an overview of why HIV and AIDS are important issues for the education sector, identifies weaknesses in current policy and programming responses, and highlights evidence gaps. Intended mainly for government, donor and NGO policy makers, planners and managers working in the education sector, the booklets are also useful for school governing bodies,administrators, school principals, teachers and other educators working on HIV and AIDS. The booklets are based on a review of published and unpublished literature, program activities (primarily but not exclusively UNESCO activities) and case studies. They are not intended to provide a comprehensive overview or scientific analysis of experience. Rather the aim is to draw on available knowledge and experience to highlight issues and lessons learned and suggest policy and programming strategies and actions to address the impact of HIV and AIDS on learners and educators in less developed countries. [This booklet was produced by UNESCO's Division for the Promotion of Quality Education, Section for Education for an Improved Quality of Life.]
