This section of the Toolkit contains curricula, manuals, and related materials that can be used to plan or adapt training sessions and programs to build the capacity of health care providers, supervisors, and supporting staff to deliver high-quality integrated services.
Find curricula and other training materials designed for:
Providers of integrated services need to understand the contraceptive options available to women living with HIV who wish to prevent pregnancy. They also need to understand additional reproductive health concerns that women living with HIV might face, such as preventing HIV and other sexually transmitted infections among partners and the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV. Curricula and other educational materials can be adapted and used to build the capacity of service providers and other health care workers to provide high-quality integrated FP/HIV services. Effective counseling is a critical element of integrated services. For FP/HIV integration to succeed, HIV care providers need to learn about contraceptive options and informed method choice. FP providers need to learn about HIV services and understand the unique needs and concerns of those seeking HIV counseling and testing, PMTCT, antiretroviral therapy (ART), or additional HIV care and support. Integrated service providers also need training on providing FP/HIV services to special populations, including youth and pregnant or postpartum women living with HIV.
Supervision and Program Management:
Training materials will help trainers, program managers, supervisors, and other administrators develop and implement effective training sessions, supervision and assessment procedures, and monitoring and evaluation systems. These educational materials will prepare health systems and organizations to implement integrated services with a deeper understanding of the dynamics of FP/HIV integration, the unique FP and reproductive health needs of people living with HIV, and the importance of measuring learning and progress during training and implementation of integrated programs.
