This is a study on what HIV/AIDS is doing to people in South Africa, to its society and economy. It looks at some of the factors that have combined to make the pandemic so powerful. It then examines South African AIDS strategies, and factors that have complicated implementation of national AIDS plans, on the assumption that lessons from national efforts might suggest principles for the education system. The paper comments on the current framework for countering the effect of HIV/AIDS on the education sector. It concludes with recommendations about strengthening the strategic foundation of education in tackling AIDS, and some priorities for short-term action.
