  8. Malawi and the fight against HIV/AIDS

    Despite the potentially extremely serious impacts of HIV/AIDS on education in Malawi, very little attention had been devoted to this fundamentally important problem. No robust research had been undertaken that systematically analyses all key quantitative and qualitative impacts of the epidemics on education. The study focused on three key questions: A) How has the HIV/AIDS epidemic affected primary and secondary schooling? B) What would be the likely impacts of the epidemic on education provision during the next 10-15 years? C) What should be done to mitigate these impacts?

Pour une majorité d'enfants orphelins ou dont les parents sont porteurs du VIH, la maladie réduit les chances d'aller à l'école. Parallèlement, le nombre de malades ou de morts dans le corps enseignant peut atteindre un niveau très alarmant, par conséquent la gestion même du système éducatif peut être problématique. …
