Training Course on HIV/AIDS Prevention, Control and Management

INTRODUCTION                                                                                                                                                     

HIV is the virus that causes HIV infection while AIDS is the most advanced stage of HIV infection. The virus is spread through contact with the blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, or breast milk of a person infected with HIV. The virus also spread mainly by having anal or vaginal sex or sharing drug injection equipment with a person infected with HIV.

HIV/AIDS remains one of the world's most significant public health challenges, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. Nevertheless, infected and affected people are still fighting discrimination and stigmatization. This raises the need for HIV/AIDS education. The training course on HIV/AIDS prevention, control and management aims at giving people information about HIV/AIDS and creating awareness on prevention, control and management.
