  1. 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

There is still a paucity of data that quantitatively and qualitatively describe and analyse the impact of HIV/AIDS on education sector governance in respect to staff attrition, absenteeism, expenditure, financial planning, human resource planning and management. …

  3. The impact of HIV/AIDS on education in Botswana

    Since independence, Botswana has made great strides in economic and human development. In education, almost 100% of children now enrol in primary school, over 90% start secondary school and girls have enrollment rates similar to those of boys.

In addition to the quantifiable impact, the impacts of HIV and AIDS may be disproportionate in small states, which predominate in the region. …

The report also shows that our country is likely to lose a very high proportion of educators due to job dissatisfaction, job stress and low morale. …
