Strengthening Sustainability of High Quality HIV Pre-Service Training in Hai Phong and of Integrated Supervision for HIV Care and Treatment in Viet Nam
Funded by CDC/PEPFAR, through a subagreement with FHI 360, Pathfinder provided technical support to the Hai Phong Medical University to design a blended (online learning and face-to-face teaching) curriculum on palliative care, methadone maintenance therapy, and antiretroviral therapy for practicing health care workers. The project also supported the Ministry of Health to develop guidelines for continuing medical education in HIV/AIDS to be applied nationwide.
The project was successfully completed and the Hai Phong Medical University and the Ministry of Health are discussing scale up of the Pathfinder’s training curricula and HIV/AIDS training methods nationwide.
