Edited version of an article submitted to the UNAIDS Project: AIDS in Africa: Three scenarios to 2005, August 2003
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 cater, among other things, for both formal and non-formal educational provision. Although this poses many challenges, it can be accomplished through a willingness to think differently, a thorough re-examination 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.
