Abstract

"This booklet examines briefly the nature and feature of HIV/AIDS and the impact of the epidemic on development. Within this context, it examines the interaction between the epidemic and education from two perspectives: the use of education in preventing HIV transmission, and the impact of the disease on education systems. It deals more extensively with the latter aspect, analyzing how HIV/AIDS affects education in terms of demand, clientele (with special referece to orphans), supply, and such quality-related aspects as content, organization and funding. A recurrent theme is that the extensive two-way interaction between HIV/AIDS and educational provision necessitates a radical re-examination of many of the premises underlying education as currently delivered - education in an AIDS-infected world cannot be the same as education in an AIDS-free world."
