  5. Education sector engagement with the AIDS and aid funding architecture at country level. Symposium : UNAIDS Inter-Agency Task Team on Education, 17 November 2008, Geneva, Switzerland. Symposium report

    While the benefits of formal education on HIV are well understood, funding of education sector activities for HIV is frequently fraught with challenges.
