Providing young people, especially girls, with the “social vaccine” of education offers them a real chance of a productive life (World Bank 2002).

But these roles were only beginning to be understood when in 2002, at the request of countries affected by HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa, the UNAIDS Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) on Education (a network of UNAIDS cosponsors, bilateral donors, and civil society organizations supporting coordinated and comprehensive education sector responses to HIV/AIDS) established the Accelerate Initiative Working Group to “accelerate the education sector response to HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa” (see box 1).

Providing young people, especially girls, with the “social vaccine” of education offers them a real chance of a productive life (World Bank 2002).
