Education for All-Fast Track Initiative (EFA-FTI) processes are strengthening HIV/AIDS responses within education sectors, but development of the technical capacity to enable effective development of plans is necessary. • The hyperendemic countries of the Southern Cone of Africa have yet to engage in the Accelerate Initiative. Introduction In recent years, the education sector has come to play an increasingly important role in preventing HIV. Children of school age have the lowest HIV infection rates of any population sector.

Some key events in Africa around the millennium, and in particular the advocacy by Michael Kelly of Zambia at the 1999 Lusaka International Congress on HIV/AIDS and STDs in Africa, the EFA regional meeting in Johannesburg, and the Dakar World Education Forum in 2000, helped highlight the need for a systemic HIV/AIDS response from the education sector (Kelly 2008). As a result, it has become increasingly recognized that the education sector has a key “external” role in prevention and in reducing stigma, and an important “internal” role in providing access to care, treatment, and support for teachers and staff, a group that in many countries represents more than 60 percent of the public sector workforce.

The networks established within the subregional communities of the African Union have become not only conduits for sharing information, but also political structures that now determine the subregional sectoral agenda. Over the past five years these locally owned networks have taken full ownership of the Accelerate Initiative and have emerged as the drivers of regional level and national level change. Dialogue between the networks and the development partners is emerging as an important determinant of the way forward.
