eLearning and HIV Diploma Course in the Caribbean

I-TECH partnered with the University of the West Indies (UWI) – St. Augustine campus in Trinidad and Tobago to develop a blended eLearning course that enables health care workers to provide high-quality clinical management of patients living with HIV.

This ten month post-graduate diploma program is delivered through a series of online, self-paced courses taught by UWI faculty, and is augmented by synchronous virtual classroom discussions and hands-on, clinical practicum experiences.

I-TECH provided technical assistance to UWI faculty and staff, including capacity building activities focused on online teaching skills, eLearning coordination, and eLearning development. In recent years, I-TECH worked with UWI to integrate extensive care and treatment content specifically focused on comprehensive care for key populations affected by HIV. The course is offered annually and I-TECH provides scholarships to healthcare workers from PEPFAR priority sites in the region.
