    Paris, France, UNESCO, 2006. 64 p.

    This report documents the outcomes of the first international survey of education sector readiness to manage and mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS. Ministries of education (MoEs) in 71 countries and civil society organizations in 18 countries were interviewed, in person and electronically, in separate research processes. Both surveys were conducted in 2004 on behalf of the UNAIDS Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) on Education. The Global Readiness Survey (GRS) of 71 MoEs was conducted by the Mobile Task Team (MTT) on the Impact of HIV and AIDS on Education, and the Civil Society Survey (CSS) of 18 civil society country interactions was conducted by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE). It should be noted that the GRS research process involved the completion of the questionnaire by an internal committee of senior MoE officials convened for this purpose, independent of an external researcher. Thus the process generated what might be described as 'self-reported information' rather than data in a conventional sense; while this may have its limitations, it nevertheless provides an important insight into the internal perceptions and assumptions of the MoEs involved.

    What is the global initiative on HIV/AIDS and Education? The Cosponsoring Organizations of UNAIDS launched the Global Initiative on HIV/AIDS and Education in March 2004. This initiative aims to radically enhance national responses against the epidemic by helping governments to implement comprehensive, nation-wide education programmes for young people. The partners in the Global Initiative are united by a commitment to implement a jointly developed framework on HIV/AIDS and Education. The Global Initiative is designed: To complement and link with the "3 by 5" Initiative to scale up treatment against AIDS; To be part of the broader prevention effort spearheaded by UNAIDS; To facilitate the implementation of the so-called "Three ones" at the country level: One agreed HIV/AIDS Action Framework that provides the basis for coordinating the work of all partners; One National AIDS Coordinating Authority, with a broad-based multisectoral mandate; One agreed country-level Monitoring and Evaluation System.

    The UNESCO Nairobi Office organised the second in a series of consultations on HIV/AIDS and education at the Nile Conference Centre in Kampala, Uganda, from 16th to 18th June 2003. This was convened upon recommendation of the first consultation on HIV/AIDS and education organised by UNESCO Nairobi that took place in Kigali, Rwanda, in March 2003. A key recommendation of the Kigali consultation was to bring together the heads of the education and teachers’ service commissions from the cluster countries, namely, Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda, to review how the HIV/AIDS pandemic is affecting the quality of the teaching service. The Kampala consultation, therefore, convened heads of Education and Teachers’ Service Commissions, those responsible for human resources in education, finance departments, leaders of teachers’ unions and UNESCO representatives from the cluster. Also participating in the consultation were members of the Mobile Task Team on HIV and Education – the MTT. The purpose of the consultation was to enhance the understanding on how HIV/AIDS is influencing the education service and the provision of quality education and how those responsible for teacher management can sustain the quality of education provision in the face of HIV/AIDS. The consultation had three main objectives. The first was to increase awareness among educator management authorities about the principal challenges imposed by HIV/AIDS to the quality of the teaching service. The second was to enhance commitment among senior management of teaching services and ministries of education to respond appropriately to the impact of HIV/AIDS on the teaching service, on quality of education and on individual educators as employees. The third objective was to identify priority actions within the management of education service commissions and within education human resource management generally and to come up with action plans.
