ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This paper outlines the aspects of the implementation of HIV/AIDS Policy in Daveyton Schools. It reveals the implementation of HIV/AIDS Policy in schools and in doing so it will help employees to be protected with the greatest rates of infection. The research sought to document the experience of high schools in managing HIV/AIDS burden and to draw out possible lessons and best practices from within the government sector. This I hope, will complement and add the current set of best practices that have been based mainly on the experience of other institutions with more extensive resources to manage the risk of HIV/AIDS. It is very important that whatever results are discovered, the intervention needs to be done to make sure that there is a progress in dealing with HIV/AIDS as a problem. It is still common that again that people who are infected and affected are still discriminated and stigmatized against by other people. This is because HIV/AIDS awareness, campaigns and training on many issues of HIV/AIDS are offered but there are no follow up done to see to it if there is implementation and change of behavior from people, who were addressed, trained or workshoped.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Hierdie studie fokus op die implementering van 'n MIV/Vigsbeleid vir skole in Daveyton. Die studie ondersoek en dokumenteer die implementering van MIV-progamme in skole en die algemene probleme wat daarmee gepaard gaan. Redelike lae kennisvlakke is binne skole gevind en daar word tot die gevolgtrekking gekom dat daar baie ruimte vir verbetering is ten opsigte van die doeltreffende bestuur van MIV/Vigs binne skole. Gevolgtrekking en voorstelle vir die beter hantering van die pandemie binne skole word bespreek en sekere praktiese voorstelle word aan die hand gedoen wat deur skole geïmplementeer kan word.
