Children’s life chances are dramatically shaped by the extent to which they succeed in school. Because of this, it is crucial for programs to be able to support the successful school entry of children affected by AIDS. This chapter first reviews existing literature on the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on educational systems (teachers and school resources), and the impact of HIV/AIDS on orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and their educational outcomes, including school enrollment and attendance, school performance, school behaviors, and school completion. It then reviews global intervention practices that aim to address multiple threats to the educational needs of OVC and other vulnerable children, making recommendations for future actions based on the lessons learned from the existing literature.

Keywords:   HIV/AIDS, orphans and vulnerable children, educational systems, school enrollment, school attendance, school completion, intervention practices
