This project provides support to the UNAIDS Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) on Education, which was created in 2002 to support accelerated and improved education sector responses to HIV and AIDS. The IATT on Education aims to achieve its mandate by promoting and supporting good practices in the education section related to HIV and AIDS; and encouraging alignment and harmonization within and across agencies to support global and country-level actions. The funds support the mandate of the IATT on Education and the second publication of their Global Progress Survey.
