    This paper has been written to meet the need for guidance, expressed by our field colleagues in Africa, on how to introduce and implement HIV/AIDS education in our refugee programmes targeting youth. It is addressed to humanitarian workers in refugee settings, especially UNHCR Community Service Officers, education personnel and the staff of implementing partners working on education related issues.
