In order to expand educational opportunities for girls and orphans and reduce their risk of contracting HIV infection, the Global AIDS Alliance recommends:
  • Eliminate School-Related Fees. School-related fees prevent millions of children, particularly girls and orphans, from attending school.
  • Mobilize Additional Resources to Achieve Universal Basic Education. Poor countries need assistance in order to scale up and improve educational systems, as well as to eliminate school fees.
  • Reform Financing and Delivery Mechanisms. There is an urgent need to reform and accelerate the impact of bilateral education investments and the multilateral Education for All-Fast Track Initiative.
