To enable health workers to address the SRH needs of HIV-positive women and adolescent girls by offering comprehensive SRH services within their own particular service-delivery setting.

Type of Document:

Audience Intended:
This manual is designed for use by skilled, experienced trainers. This curriculum can be used to train any SRH and HIV/AIDS health worker. The term health workers is used here to refer to the staff who provide clinical care, counseling, or other support services on-site or through outreach.

Population Experiencing Stigma and/or Discrimination:
HIV positive women and adolescent girls; also urges male involvement.

Stigma and/or Discrimination:
Both, generally discrimination grouped with stigma.

Assess and/or Address:

A team of at least two trainers is necessary for this intensive workshop. As one trainer facilitates a session, the other(s) can record information on flipcharts, monitor time, help keep the discussion on track with the session objectives, monitor small-group work, and act in demonstration role-plays. It is imperative for the trainers to have extensive experience either in counseling or in counseling training. Four-day training and two-day planning workshop.

Role play scenarios and key ideas interesting.
