  2. The impact of HIV/AIDS on the education sector in Uganda: Study 2. Examining the impact of HIV/AIDS on governance in the education sector

    Despite the evident effects of the epidemic on the education sector, there has been no systematic research to look at its impact on education governance in Uganda, in terms of the performance of the descriptive and prescriptive roles of the different actors in the sector.

  7. Mitigating the impact of HIV on service providers. What has been attempted, what is working, what has not worked and why? A study commissioned by the DFID Service Delivery Team: Workstream on Capacity Development and Human Resources in collaboration with USAID

Many also experience the impact of HIV and AIDS on the services they are able to provide and the needs of people they serve.
