- Publisher's Summary
- In February 2008 the Commonwealth Secretariat collaborated with Education International, the worldwide umbrella organisation of teachers' unions, to hold the third in a series of research symposiums. Researchers from Ghana, Jamaica, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, the United Kingdom and Zambia met in Maputo to address the most critical human resource for the achievement of education goals - the teacher. Under the theme of 'Gender, HIV/AIDS and the Status of Teachers' the symposium looked at the mobility of teachers and assessed the impact and effect of HIV/AIDS on education and the teaching profession. This publication reports the fruits of their discussions, and their recommendations on these three key issues.
