Participants were asked to review the reasons for attending the workshop and also express their expectations in terms what they hope to achieve by the end of the week. All the participants were requested to write down their own workshop objectives on slips of papers provided. These objectives where then grouped into four broad categories: Review and understand the current position and Ministries response with regard to the disease; Develop a shared vision of a desired future for education to manage the HIV/AIDS pandemic; Develop a prioritised, implementable action plan with responsibilities and time frames; Other reasons and expectations. The detailed responses of individuals are provided in a schedule (Annexure C). By far the majority saw the objective for the workshop as "developing an action plan for the management of HIV and AIDS in Education". Other important aspects included the provision of information on HIV/AIDS and the adaptation of curriculum to address HIV/AIDS issues.
