In order to better meet the needs of teachers' representatives worldwide, EI and its partners decided to merge two key training programmes dealing with Education For All and HIV and AIDS prevention in schools. The two issues are inextricably linked. HIV and AIDS represent a direct threat to reaching the "Education For All" goals, whilst lack of schooling contributes to the further spread of the epidemic. The publication presents the two separate EI programmes - EFA and HIV and AIDS - and shows why EI chose to combine them. In chapters 2 and 3,the publication focuses on the successes and failures of EFA policies and the impact of HIV and AIDS on education personnel. The last section of this publication highlights the contribution of some unions in making a real difference in the future education of disadvantaged children in Andra Pradesh, India or in making sure children stay in school in order to receive the skills to prevent HIV and AIDS infections in Rwanda. The section also features a contribution from the HIV/AIDS coordinator in Guyana on her motivation and drive to implement the HIV/AIDS prevention programme and highlights the impact of HIV/AIDS on the education sector in Zambia.
