Guide to Implementation of Services for Early Diagnosis of HIV in Infants in Resource-Limited Settings


Book 2: Training Curriculum for Clinical Staff

This 5-module training curriculum on early infant diagnosis and infant follow-up is intended for midwives, nurses, doctors, and other healthcare staff. Following the training, staff members will be able to identify infants in need of testing, counsel caregivers before testing, and provide appropriate follow-up care for HIV-exposed and HIV-infected infants and young children. They will also learn how to collect, handle, and send dried blood spot (DBS) specimens for early infant diagnosis. The fifth module is an interactive group exercise that evaluates and reinforces skills gained from the training.
