HIV Care and ART for Physicians in Ethiopia

This 7-day training provides basic information on HIV, AIDS, and antiretroviral therapy (ART) to enable physicians in Ethiopia to provide quality care and treatment of HIV-infected patients. The design of this course assumes that participants are professional health care workers who have little or no experience in the field of HIV and AIDS. This course promotes a multidisciplinary team model for comprehensive HIV care by bringing physicians, nurses, and pharmacists together for select sessions; through formal presentations on the multidisciplinary care approach; and via exercises and role plays for trainees. This curriculum includes 13 sessions specifically tailored for physicians, and six additional sessions developed for a combined audience of physicians, nurses, and pharmacists. The course includes teaching methods such as lectures, case studies, role plays, large and small group discussions, individual work and small group work.
