Globally, HIV and AIDS continue to impact negatively on nations, communities and families. Education - both in and out of school - has been identified as having a key role to play in reducing both individual risk and social vulnerability to infection. Education also holds the potential to reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with AIDS. In his inaugural lecture, and reflecting on twenty years experience, Professor Peter Aggleton examines the potential of education to bring about lasting change in the HIV epidemic. He explores why too few educationalists have risen to the challenge and sets out his vision of how education in its broadest sense can help.
