Description: 
The main aim of this study was to assess training needs for educational planners and managers in the context of HIV/AIDS in Kenya.The Kenyan government's overall policy goal for primary education is to achieve Universal Primary Education (UPE) by 2005, which is consistent with the Dakar commitment to provide Education for All by 2015 (UNESCO; 2000). To achieve these policy objectives, the National Rainbow Coalition (NARC) Government has taken the initiative of implementing a free primary education programme, which began in February 2003. However, retaining children in school that come from families with members infected and affected by HIV/AIDS has become a major challenge to achieving these targets - and the number of orphaned children is reported to be increasing.
