The recommendations in the Positive Learning publication were authored by Linnea Renton (independent consultant) based on input from a Global Consultative Group convened by UNESCO, the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+) and the Global Network of Young People Living with HIV (Y+ Global). The Global Consultative Group was made up of over 60 stakeholders including government representatives, teachers, UN civil society and young people in all their diversity.
