This think piece highlights the need to protect the education system so that it may also in turn protect. 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. In the past, the education sector itself has focused on its role in prevention; however, it needs to focus more on protecting itself so that it can continue to work on educating others. The authors use the conclusion to highlight a sense of urgency and call the reader to action.
