Education has a pivotal role to play in HIV/AIDS prevention and mitigating its effects. The special responsibility of schools and teachers as role models and instructors has been acknowledged for more than 20 years. But education systems are themselves struggling with the impact of the disease on learning institutions, particularly in countries where HIV prevalence rates are high. The objective of the conference 'HIV/AIDS and Teacher Education' was to analyse existing assumptions, weaknesses and achievements of pre-service and in-service teacher education within the broader context of HIV/AIDS and education, and to reflect on necessary steps in order to improve and to extend what has been done and what has not been done. This report is the result of the three-days work.
