AIDS Information Centre-Uganda Publishes VHT Training Report

AUTHOR:Kellen T. BagumaSOURCE:AIDS Information Centre-Uganda

AIDS Information Center-Uganda recently published a report detailing their March and April training of Village Health Team members (VHTs) in collaboration with Life for Mothers. The goal of the training was to instruct VHTs on how to disseminate accurate information regarding HIV and AIDs, which will subsequently promote health-seeking behaviors among the community. Among the information they were taught to promote are basic facts on HIV/AIDs and other sexually transmitted diseases, safe male circumcision, and effective contraception methods.  This training will enable VHTs to provide improved family planning education and services to women and families in the villages they serve. View the full report here.
