    Le Bureau de l'UNESCO-Nairobi a organisé, du 16 au 18 juin 2003, la deuxième de la série de ses consultations sur le thème du VIH/SIDA et l'Education au Nile Conference Centre de Kampala, en Ouganda. Cette Consultation a fait suite à la recommandation de la première en série, organisée par le Bureau de l'UNESCO-Nairobi, et qui a eu lieu à Kigali (Rwanda) au mois de mars 2003. La recommandation principale de la Consultation de Kigali a été de réunir les responsables des Commissions chargées de l'enseignement et celles des enseignants de différents pays du Bureau de l'UNESCO-Nairobi, à savoir le Burundi, le Kenya, le Rwanda et l'Ouganda, afin de leur offrir l'occasion de ré examiner les effets de l'épidémie du VIH/SIDA sur la qualité de l'enseignement. La Consultation de Kampala a, de ce fait, réuni des Responsables des Commissions chargées de l'enseignement et celles des enseignants, ceux des ressources humaines dans les départements de l'Education et des Finances, les principaux responsables des syndicats d'enseignants, et des représentants du Bureau de l'UNESCO-Nairobi. Des membres de Mobile Task Team - MTT (Equipe mobile de travail sur le VIH et l'éducation) ont également participé à cette Consultation. Le but de la Consultation était d'améliorer non seulement la compréhension des participants de l'influence du VIH/SIDA sur le service éducatif et la qualité de l'enseignement, mais aussi celle de la manière dont les responsables des services de gestion des enseignants pourraient maintenir la qualité de l'enseignement face au VIH/SIDA. La Consultation visait trois objectifs principaux. Le premier objectif était développer la prise de conscience parmi les cadres dirigeants des services des enseignants et promouvoir leur compréhension des défis primordiaux imposés par le VIH/SIDA sur la qualité des services de l'enseignement. Le second objectif était de promouvoir l'esprit d'engagement parmi les principaux responsables des services de l'enseignement et des ministères de l'éducation, de façon à répondre de manière appropriée à l'impact du VIH/SIDA sur le service éducatif, la qualité de l'enseignement et les éducateurs en tant qu'employés. Le troisième objectif était d'identifier des actions prioritaires au sein des instances d'administration des commissions des enseignants et de gestion des ressources humaines de l'enseignement en général, et d'en ressortir des plans d'action.
