This paper will provide an overview of the HIV/AIDS situation globally and in Africa. It will then provide the present status of HIV/AIDS in higher education institutions and schools in Africa, including examples of good practice with respect to teaching, research and community service, and present barriers and challenges. The section entitled "where do we go from here?" deals with how higher education institutions might dramatically increase their efforts to comprehensively "Challenge the Challenger", the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The paper ends with concluding remarks reiterating the position of the Association of African Universities adopted at their Nairobi, Kenya, meeting in February 2001. References as well as appendices are provided.
