On October 25-26, 2000, the Office of Women in Development in the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) sponsored the "Colloquium on Girls' Education: A Key Intervention Against HIV/AIDS and Its Effects?" in Washington, D.C. The meeting was organized for nearly two hundred participants from academic institutions, NGOs, multilateral development agencies, and the private and religious sectors to examine the latest evidence on the consequences and impact of the epidemic, share experience and ideas, and begin formulating a pragmatic "action agenda" to combat the effects of the epidemic while promoting increased access to quality education for girls.
