HIV/AIDS & Education

The role of education in the protection care and support of orphans and vulnerable children living in a world with HIV and AIDS

This paper has been prepared by a working group of the UNAIDS Interagency Task Team on Education and HIV/AIDS. It began as a discussion paper for the Global Partners Forum for Childrren Orphaned and Made Vulnerable by HIV/AIDS, which was held in Geneva in October 2003. This document descirbes the contribution of educaiton to the protection, care and support of orphans and other vulnerable childre, as set out in the Framework for the Protection, Care and Support of Orphans and Vulnerable Children Living in a World with HIV/AIDS. It should be read with the UNAIDS gloval strategy on HIV/AIDS and education: a strtegic approach. It is intended to provide guidance for

investments and interventions by presenting the broad lines of action considered necessary for educationrelated responses to orphans and other children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. The content of this paper has been drawn from available data and literature, and from the experiences of partner agencies and governments. While HIV/AIDS is certainly not new, coordinating an effective response to the impact of HIV/AIDS on education systems, and assisting education systems to better meet the need of orphans continue to pose major challenges. In particular, this paper draws upon and seeks to logically relate education responses to the overlapping commitments made in the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS (2001), the Millennium Development Goals, Education For All, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
