Visser-Valfrey, Muriel and Justine Sass
A Strategic Approach: HIV & AIDS and Education
UNESCO - United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Paris, May 2009, 54 pp

"This publication provides a strategic vision of the critically important role that education must play in addressing HIV and AIDS. It targets decision-makers and practitioners in the education sector, as well as colleagues who work on HIV and AIDS responses in other sectors. It can be used as an advocacy tool to build commitment to the role of education in the HIV and AIDS response and to generate multisectoral partnerships for implementation. It identifies key priorities for responding to HIV and AIDS through education, puts forward two central objectives for education responses, and outlines how the response should be tailored to the local epidemiological situation and other factors."
