This toolkit aims to help education staff from development cooperation agencies, including both development and humanitarian-oriented multilateral and bilateral agencies as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other civil society organisations, to support the process of mainstreaming HIV and AIDS into education sector planning and implementation. It provides resources and support to assess the progress countries have made with respect to HIV and AIDS mainstreaming; to identify entry points and opportunities; and to establish priorities for advocacy and action. It is designed to be used as a reference tool or a resource for training and discussion, depending on the local needs and context

Examines (briefly) the role of education in HIV prevention, and (in detail) the growing, potentially devastating impact of HIV on education systems. The latter is analysed with respect to the demand and supply of education (growing number of orphans, declining number of teachers, and associated issues); the impact of HIV on the content, process, organisation, and role of education, and on the planning and management of education. Concludes that education must be radically re-examined in the light of the HIV pandemic, and its role in the prevention of the disease
