Education and AIDS Training

TREAT Asia regularly hosts workshops and develops and distributes educational materials to provide clinicians and community advocates with the knowledge they need to better address the epidemic within their own country contexts. These have included trainings to improve HIV treatment literacy among community advocates, peer educators, and healthcare providers; a workshop series on increasing awareness about hepatitis C and HIV among PWID; animated videos, flip charts, and fact sheets designed to inform both clinicians and patients about treating HIV and hepatitis C co-infection; and a policy brief and video series on HIV-positive women’s reproductive rights.

TREAT Asia supports projects that focus on expanding access to treatment and improving quality of care for children and adolescents. It is the only regional program that integrates research to optimize pediatric HIV care and treatment with trainings to improve the pediatric HIV knowledge of caregivers, community advocates, and healthcare providers. The program seeks to support HIV-positive adolescents’ unique developmental needs by educating them, their families, and their physicians about the multidimensional aspects of growing up with HIV, and it studies and supports programs that help children and adolescents transition into adult care. As part of this effort, TREAT Asia has begun trainings for caregivers on addressing the mental health needs of adolescents with HIV. Through its Youth ACATA program, it trains selected young people to be advocates for other HIV-positive youth.
