Extra info for Accelerating the Education Sector Response to HIV. Five Years of Experience from Sub-Saharan Africa

Sample text

Most countries have developed or have begun to develop education sector responses. The issue has shifted from focus on advocacy at the regional and subregional levels to emphasis on effective implementation at the country level, where Ministries of Education across Africa are now playing an increasingly active role in the national multisectoral response to HIV/AIDS. The challenge in moving forward is to measure the extent to which these actions bring about beneficial results for teachers, learners, and the broader education sector.

At least as important, decisions and actions by the participating countries have completely changed the political economy of the sectoral response to HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa. The networks established within the subregional communities of the African Union have become not only conduits for sharing information, but also political structures that now determine the subregional sectoral agenda. Over the past five years these locally owned networks have taken full ownership of the Accelerate Initiative and have emerged as the drivers of regional level and national level change.

HIV treatment is an essential part of the response to this epidemic, but although treatment efforts gather pace, HIV prevention is too often being left behind. Data from 2005 showed that the rate of new HIV infections greatly exceeded the expansion of HIV treatment, making it clear that universal access to ART will only be achieved once HIV prevention becomes dramatically more successful. Many people still do not believe they are at risk, and stigma and discrimination still discourage many people from taking an HIV test to determine their HIV status.
