ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of HIV/AIDS on the education of selected primary schools of Kotido district, Uganda. The specific objectives of the study were to, determine the effect of HIV/ AIDS on the enrollment of children in school, determine the relationship between HIV/AIDS and school drop out, determine the challenges teachers face in regards to the HIV/ AIDS pandemic, determine the Impact of HIV/AIDS on teachers' participation in education and Investigate the challenges faced by children living with HIV/ AIDS in school. The methods used for data collection were questionnaires to the students and interviews with the teachers. The findings revealed that HIV/ AIDS has led to drop out and low enrollment of children in school, and has hindered the participation of children and teachers in education. The study recommended that, the community, students and teachers should be sensitized about stigmatization. Through education, schools can also help to reduce stigma and discrimination - a major problem for people around the world who are living with HIV. Teachers should be taught more about HIV/ AIDS and also taught effective methods on how to teach about aids to students. Teachers who expand their understanding of the subject while researching for a lesson can pass this information on to adults as well as students, and the same can be said for the children themselves; once informed about AIDS, they can go home and tell their parents or their friends what they have learnt.
