New HIV clinical training resource available from Impact/Family Health International

Published: 26 March 2004

A new facilitator's guide for training physicians, nurses and other health care workers to treat people with HIV/AIDS in developing countries is now available. "HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment: A Clinical Course for People Caring for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS" features facilitator's notes to guide the training process. An accompanying CD-Rom contains PowerPoint slides and notes for course participants.

This course is designed to address one of the greatest challenges to rapidly scaling-up antiretroviral therapy and care and support services in resource-constrained settings: training health workers to treat HIV-related conditions. The 436-page facilitator's guide covers the most important elements of care and treatment, including antiretroviral therapy, and addresses special issues related to women, young children, and people co-infected with tuberculosis.

The state-of-the-art book was produced by the Implementing AIDS Prevention and Care (IMPACT) Project, which is funded by the US. Agency for International Development and managed by Family Health International (FHI).

FHI has worked in collaboration with ministries of health and community-based organizations to build capacity for comprehensive HIV/AIDS treatment, care and support services. In Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda, FHI provides ART as part of a spectrum of comprehensive care services with support from USAID and the UK's Department for International Development.

The facilitator's guide and participant's manual are available in electronic form at the Family Health International website

Hard copies are available free to users in developing countries. To request one, please send complete mailing address to: aidspubs@fhi.org

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
