In much of the literature on HIV prevention and AIDS care, formal schooling is conceived of as the primary mechanism for "inoculating" children against the pandemic and meeting the needs of children and communities made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. Despite this growing focus on formal schooling as a "social vaccine", there is little evidence of how schools and children-particularly orphaned and vulnerable children-interact in highly-affected areas. This presentation will examine evidence from Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe on how children, schools, communities, and states currently interact. It will then examine international efforts, particularly US Federal efforts, to transform HIV/AIDS education in these settings. Lastly, it will present recommendations about how to improve the efficacy of an "educational vaccine" against HIV.
