Integration of Family Planning into HIV Counseling and Testing, Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission, and Antiretroviral Therapy Services - Trainer's Guide

Trainer's Guide, 120 page PDF. This training package is intended to train practicing HIV service providers working directly and regularly in HCT, PMTCT, and/or ART. Ideally participants should be clinical staff based in public or private health facilities with at least three months experience providing HCT, PMTCT, and/or ART services. This can include HCT as provider-initiated counseling and testing (e.g., in in-patient services, PMTCT services in MCH) as per national policy and implementation guidelines. Each training should be organized to train 20-25 participants. Trainings with fewer than 20 participants do not allow for adequate small group work or group discussion exchanges. More than 25 participants become unwieldy for trainers to manage and these trainings do not allow for the application of participatory training methods. At least 2 trainers should lead the 3-day training. These trainers should commit to attending the complete training to ensure continuity. A trainer should be assigned to each unit. The trainers should have experience in interpersonal communication and counseling, stigma and discrimination reduction, and dynamic, interactive training methods.
