The study aimed at establishing gender dynamics of HIV and AIDS at university level of education in Kenya. Comprehensive data on the magnitude of HIV and AIDS was found to be lacking in all the universities. Where available, the data was not disaggregated by gender or category of respondents. Vulnerability to HIV and AIDS vary by gender, age, level of study, type of residence, economic group, category of respondents and geographical location. HIV and AIDS poses a threat to the human capital formation function of university education in Kenya, and ultimately the country’s socio-economic development. HIV and AIDS impacts both supply and demand of education, at individual, family/community, institutional and national levels. The availability, type and adequacy of the mitigatory measures/interventions varied by universities, are largely inadequate, not gender responsive and in most instances, not known to the target beneficiaries. The study recommends putting in place monitoring and evaluation frameworks to ensure appropraite documentation of data on HIV and AIDS, increased budgetary allocation and gender mainstreaming in institutional HIV and AIDS interventions.

This exciting and thought-provoking book showcases the first case studies of educational experiments in different levels of medical education at the University of Toronto. In this robust qualitative and quantitative analysis, we discovered the potential of knowledge building pedagogy and software in medical education through the lens of a teacher and educational researcher.

These case studies revealed fascinating insights into the nature of medical education at the undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education levels, and demonstrated how the profession can be transformed into a knowledge building culture.

The prevailing day to day demonstrations, riots, and chaos waged by university students in Tanzania are a result of poor education policies, one of them being the financing of higher education policy. This book examines the policy and how the poor can access education. It notes that the Higher Education Students’ Loans Board which is charged with the task of providing loans to poor students has failed to do the job since it disburses loans to whoever manages to fill up the loan forms. Yet, one can get the loan at certain percentage or at times one cannot get even a single coin. The book may be useful to higher education financing policy actors and students in Tanzania and beyond.
