Case Studies of Kenya and Tanzania

image of Coping with HIV/AIDS in Education

The case study districts selected in these two countries are among the areas with the highest HIV/AIDS infections. The analysis of AIDS programmes and their effectiveness has been undertaken at both district and national level. This book clearly demonstrates how HIV/AIDS is affecting pupils, teachers, parents, the curriculum and resources. It will be an invaluable source of reference for ministries of education and other decisionmakers in monitoring their own antiHIV/AIDS programmes.



The Tanzania Case Study

The findings of this study confirmed the fact that orphanhood is becoming a serious problem in the education service. One of the most difficult conditions created by AIDS is the increase in the number of children who are orphaned due to AIDS. The Kagera Regional Education Annual Report (KREAR) of 1996 shows that there were 46,350 orphans out of 199,450 pupils (aged 7–17) enrolled in primary schools.
