Kelly, Michael J.
Paper for presentation to National Conference on HIV/AIDS and the Education Sector, "An Education Coalition Against HIV/AIDS", South Africa, May 2002.
Kelly stresses the importance of responding to the epidemic quickly. The generation hardest hit is today's young. Prevention and education programs must be put in place now to ensure HIV/AIDS is brought into the mainstream and that positive behaviour change is brought about. The education sector's response must cover many aspects of the epidemic's impact Orphans, teachers, and the educational staff all require well-developed comprehensive plans. Kelly's paper considers the major arenas in which the education sector must play a role to fight the disease and move forward.
