Schools have a vital role in preventing HIV/AIDS among young people, but there is still a lot of assessment of the educational material to be done. This newsletter summarizes the International Bureau of Education's (IBE) approach to HIV prevention.

Education: a vaccine for HIV/AIDS
Today, nearly forty million people are living with HIV. Experts agree that education could help limit the further spread of the pandemic. Yet many countries are slow to put in place a coherent HIV and AIDS prevention education plan.

These two perspectives, education a vehicle for reducing the incidence of HIV/AIDS and education itself as being threatened by the disease, are the focus of much of the literature on education and HIV/AIDS.

The authors use the conclusion to highlight a sense of urgency and call the reader to action.
