Education sector is among those affected by the emergence of HIV/AIDS. The epidemic has led to illness and death among staff and students. Education is also at the center of HIV/AIDS response. Having this, the education sector policy and strategy on HIV/AIDS spells out that HIV/AIDS not only affect quality of education but also reduces the number of educators, students and other staff members and also distorts the resource of the sector. With this respect studies show that higher education institutions are at risk for the transmission of HIV/AIDS for several reasons.
