Education contributes to knowledge and personal skills that are essential for HIV prevention. In countries with a generalized HIV epidemic, the education sector also contributes to mitigating the impact of AIDS on students, education personnel, their families and communities. Monitoring and evaluating the role of education in the response to the HIV epidemic is critical for countries to improve their policies and school-based programmes. Monitoring and evaluation can be challenging: What to measure? How to measure? Same measure over time (comparison)? When to measure (short-term, mid-term and Long-term changes)? Which (sufficient and sustainable) resources?
