Abstract

"This paper takes a closer look at the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on education from a human rights perspective. Since no specific research studies on the impact of AIDS on education, let alone from a human rights perspective, have been conducted in the Asia-Pacific region, the paper offers a conceptual framework to assess how HIV/AIDS has an impact on human rights and the education sector, and discusses directions for a future response based on conceptual models described in earlier publications (Shaeffer 1994; Kelly 2000; Wijngaarden and Shaeffer 2002; Tomasevski 2003). In brief, human rights is discussed both in relation to access and demand for education by children affected by HIV/AIDS, and also in relation to supply, quality of education, the role of schools and management issues."
