Overview

This course targets health care providers who have the responsibility for establishing and implementing the provider-initiated approach to HIV testing and counseling. This includes health care providers in the public, NGO and private sectors. Priority health care delivery settings include STI clinics, antenatal clinics, TB treatment facilities, and services for injecting drug users, men who have sex with men and sex workers. In settings with generalized epidemics, HIV testing can be offered as part of any clinical contact for adults and children.
