Some preliminary observations are that levels of structural response, dedicated staff, support or advocacy by education ministers, sectoral and workplace policy development, awareness programms and research is generally linked to prevalence level for example higher in medium or high prevalence situations. There is low levels of public commitment from education ministers in low prevalence environments. Funding priorities ranked curriculum, research and MoE structures highest, confirming a growing understanding of HIV/AIDS as a systematic issue.
