Objective: To identify the needs of the population infected with HIV older than 55 years old.
The aim of the exercise is to gather the information about the health needs both physical and emotional in the elder population (HIV-infected people 55 years of age or older) to be able to offer an appropriate health management response. The questionnaire covers aspects beyond the medical attention, including patients’ social, physiological and physiological needs and requirements.
Train the trainers
Prior to the workshop, the Scientific Committee will select the “trainees” among those participants from the referral institutions from the different regions and countries participating in the workshop. Side meetings will be organized with the trainees and presentations, reference materials and literature will be provided. Trainees will develop their own presentation materials based on those from the workshop and delivered the course to their peers.
In order to ensure the delivery and completion of the program, a report will be submitted by the trainees to the Scientific Committee along with a feedback questionnaire filled by those trained by the “trainee” and a certificate of completion will be delivered. The “trainees” will be compensated for their time and dedication.
