english Integrated HIV/AIDS

Course is: elearning with: 5 user subscribed []

A quarter a century since the identification of the first cases of HIV infection in Eastern and Central Africa, HIV/AIDS remains the eminent health crisis in the region. The introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has brought hope to those infected with HIV. However, despite the introduction and availability of effective life-prolonging intervention, such as HAART, many more infected people wait to be reached. The reasons for this are many, but one important one is that many healthcare providers have not been well equipped with the requisite knowledge and skills to deliver effective HIV treatment, care and support. The main objective of this course is therefore to equip healthcare personnel in primary care settings to deliver effective holistic HIV treatment, care and support. A typical healthcare worker in a primary care environment in the region will be working in the delivery room in the morning, at the MCH in the mid-morning and finish off at the Out Patient Department in the afternoon. The approach of this curriculum is to equip such a health worker with the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to provide a standard package of care to those seeking care AMREF has been providing Continuing Professional Development courses for health workers for the last 50 years, as a means to address performance gaps among health providers. A variety of training approaches have been used to provide CPD, of which elearning is one of them. elearning allows one to study as they continue to provide vital health services to their clients.It provides one with an opportunity to improve their competence and thus provide quality care.
