This 90 minute on-line training provides basic information about HIV infection and AIDS. This serves as an introductory course for anyone with a professional or personal interest in HIV/AIDS. The training is organized in four modules that may be completed at your own pace.
- Module One provides the definition of HIV and AIDS and an overview of HIV/AIDS data;
- Module Two explains how HIV is and is not transmitted;
- Module Three reviews basic facts about the immune systems, how HIV progresses and the importance of care and treatment for HIV; and
- Module Four provides information about HIV testing and HIV prevention strategies.
At the end of each module, there is a brief quiz to test your understanding of the material.
Audience: All non-physician health and human services providers; peer educators; and anyone in the general public with an interest in HIV/AIDS.
This one-hour on-line training will describe how HIV treatment adherence and retention in care are strongly linked with achieving viral suppression and improved health outcomes for people with HIV. However, New York State data show that less than 40% of people living with HIV are taking advantage of the full benefits of HIV treatment. This training describes how non-physician health and human services providers can play a role in linking clients to HIV care, promoting client retention in care and supporting HIV treatment adherence.
By the end of this Online-Training, participants will be able to:
- Describe how HIV treatment adherence and retention in care contribute to viral suppression and improved health outcomes for people with HIV
- Recall at least three ways that non-physician health and human services providers can help people with HIV achieve viral suppression
- Recall the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and NYS goals for improving participation in HIV care
- Explain how early access to care and HIV treatment adherence can help reduce the spread of HIV.
