HIV/ AIDS Awareness Training
The aim of the HIV/AIDS Awareness Training program is to empower and increase the awareness to participants of HIV/AIDS, its impact, management and availability of support systems. Each year there are more and more new HIV infections, which shows that people either aren't learning the message about the dangers of HIV, or are unable or unwilling to act on it. Many people are dangerously ignorant about the virus, a survey found recently that a third of teens thought there was a 'cure' for AIDS. Education is an important component of preventing the spread of HIV.
Even if HIV training courses were completely successful, it would still have to be an ongoing process; each generation is a new generation of people becoming adults and they need to know how to protect themselves from infection. The older generations, who have hopefully already been educated, may need the message reinforced, and need to be kept informed, so that they are able to protect themselves and inform the younger.
The HIV/AIDS Workplace Training Courses have been developed to meet the needs of business and government organizations who wish to respond with compassion and understanding to HIV and AIDS and the issues that arise in the workplace. The objective of the course is to provide managers with a deeper understanding of HIV and AIDS, as well as the skills to manage the impacts of this dreaded disease.
Participants will gain insight into the care of HIV positive people, strategies to prevent the disease and the rights of the employers and employees.
