Description

The International Center for Equal Healthcare Access (ICEHA) is a non profit organization of physicians and nurses who volunteer to transfer their expertise on HIV care and infectious diseases to clinics in resource-poor countries. This two-day workshop is designed to prepare HIV and ID healthcare providers to apply resource-rich expertise to resource-poor settings. Subjects that will be covered include: Review of the HIV pandemic and determinants of successful HIV intervention programs, Review of ICEHA’s initiatives and specific role of volunteers, WHO treatment guidelines for developing countries, Anti-retroviral therapy in developing countries, Practical implications of HIV care and OI prophylaxis in developing countries, Clinical issues likely to be encountered in developing countries, Infection control in developing countries, and Operational issues likely to be encountered in developing countries. The Workshop is free of charge but is limited to 40 people, so it is important to register early. Participants will be invited to fill out an application to volunteer with ICEHA in resource-poor countries.
