Supporting the educational needs of HIV-positive learners: a desk-based study

Case Studies & Research
42 p.

The purpose of this desk-based research was to review policy with respect to the education of HIV-positive children and to examine how their education can be encouraged and supported in primary and secondary school settings. This was done through an appraisal of the scientific literature that had a bearing on the special needs of the children, and the public statements of national and international organizations dealing with the epidemic. The study gave priority to educational issues but did not ignore the fact that HIV-positive learners and children need adequate medical support, nutrition and suitable home care in order to take advantage of educational opportunities.
