This monograph identifies problems related to the implementation of school-based HIV/AIDS programmes, and uses Grassroot Soccer (GRS) as a case study of how an NGO has helped improve current HIV/AIDS prevention programmes for children in Africa.

The paper concludes by arguing that if GRS is going to play an important role in improving current HIV/AIDS education programs, they will need to continue to work collaboratively with schools and governments and move the focus on soccer to find other ways of including role models to which both boys and girls can relate.
