I-TECH Curricula on HIV and AIDS Care and Treatment

This section contains health and HIV-related PowerPoint slide presentations from I-TECH training curricula that can be used by a clinical mentor to conduct more formal, classroom-based training of health care workers. The complete curricula, including Facilitator Guides, Participant Handbooks, and other course materials are available either on the I-TECH website or from I-TECH upon request. This section includes slide sets for seven curricula (multiday trainings with several slide sets) and materials for three workshops (shorter sessions appropriate for an hour or two of training on a focused topic). Clinical mentors are free to adapt and change these materials as needed. All of the curricula included here have been pilot tested in countries where I-TECH has offices. 

Please note that some of the curricula contain data and references that are specific to the country for which it was developed. All materials are in English unless otherwise noted; some curricula are written in British English and some in American English depending on the country for which the training was developed.
