This curriculum has been adapted from the Generic Training Package on the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV for national use in Guyana. It is composed of participant and trainer manuals, slide sets, a pocket guide, and wall charts. Topics include an overview of HIV, counseling and testing, stigma and discrimination, social support, occupational exposure, infant feeding, and program implementation. [HIV prevention and treatment guidelines change frequently based on clinical research study findings. Please refer to the WHO or U.S. DHHS guidelines for the most current recommendations on ARV treatment and PMTCT.]
