Abstract:This article focuses on the need for expanded stakeholder involvement as a means of enhancing the Botswana Department of Secondary Education (DSE) HIV and AIDS strategic plan. Research has indicated that the effects of HIV and AIDS on the supply of and demand for education are considerable. Using a questionnaire and interviews, the research established that the current DSE HIV and AIDS strategic plan lacks comprehensive strategies for preventing HIV spread in schools. Furthermore, the study shows that there is limited involvement of external stakeholders such as women's organizations, parents/guardians, local communities, the mass media, cultural and faith-based organizations and NGOs. The study explores how greater success could be realized and concludes that the strategic plan can be improved through expanded external stakeholder involvement at all stages. In order to enhance the DSE strategic plan, a stakeholder involvement model is presented. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
