HIV/AIDS and the Education Sector in Nigeria : review of policy and research documents

Abstract:

This literature review on HIV/AIDS and education in Nigeria has been undertaken in preparation for a regional workshop on “Education Research Response to HIV/AIDS” scheduled for Bamako in June 2004. The aim of the workshop is to identify research gaps and develop the framework for a transnational study on HIV/AIDS and education in selected ERNWACA member countries. The documents reviewed were gathered mainly in Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria from various government agencies and ministries, NGOs, donor agencies and individual researchers working on HIV/AIDS. Additional information was sourced from the Internet. Although a reasonable amount of literature exists on HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, relatively little deals specifically with education.
