There is no lack of international agreements on the need to fight HIV/AIDS and the importance of education in this regard. MDG’s 2 and 6, the Education for All objectives and the Convention of the Rights of the Child and UNGASS all mention the need for action. Despite these noble words the epidemic still gathers pace.

Millions of orphans and vulnerable children are still not going to school, many of them being affected or infected by HIV/AIDS.
