    In the Eastern and Southern African Region (ESAR), the AIDS epidemic is beginning to have a serious impact on the education sector, specifically on the demand for, supply of, and the management and quality of education provided at all levels.

Two related interventions developed by the Canada South Africa Education Management Programme are also described in the paper.
