1. Managing HIV/AIDS Home based Care Programmes

The Centre for African Family Studies (CAFS) will be holding an international course on 'Managing HIV/AIDS Home-based Care Programmes' from 27 June to 15 July 2005 in Nairobi, Kenya. This is an intensive three-week course offering a learning and sharing opportunity for programme managers and officers in the field of HIV/AIDS. The course will provide trainees with hands-on skills in community mobilisation, comprehensive HIV/AIDS home-based care services, HIV/AIDS community-based prevention interventions, ART and PMTCT Community preparedness, training transfer, and planning, supervision, monitoring and evaluation of HIV/AIDS community-based intervention programmes.

The learning atmosphere is lively, creative and participatory, and uses an approach that emphasizes 'learning by doing'. Participants share experiences in home-based care and also learn from the regional experience of CAFS in building the capacity of individuals, and from organisations working in the field of HIV/AIDS and reproductive health.

The fee for the course is US $2,800, which covers tuition, training materials, participant's handbook, supplies, training-related field trips and certification awards.

In addition to this international course, CAFS can offer tailored in-country training to a minimum of 10 participants on HIV/AIDS, home-based care and support services.
