n Commonwealth Youth and Development - The potential contribution of schooling to rolling back HIV and Aids

Volume 3, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1727-7140



Increasing the salience of schooling in countering the Aids epidemic suggests the need to confront many of the challenges posed by current education and school systems. The author considers these and proposes the ideal of schools that have been transformed into multipurpose development and welfare institutions that provide, among other things, formal and non-formal education. Although this poses many challenges, it can be accomplished through a willingness to think differently, a thorough reexamination of the meaning and purpose of education in a world with HIV and Aids, the establishment of effective partnerships, and the dynamic involvement of communities.
