This course, developed in partnership with MSF Canada, is currently available as a stand-alone training to anyone for their own self-study. As there is no hands-on exposure to actual patients it must be understood that, on completion, the participant will not be equipped to consult independently in an HIV/TB clinic. Clinical exposure, ideally in the form of supervised consultations in a TB/HIV clinic, is an essential prerequisite for equipping the participants with the skills necessary for independent consulting in an HIV/TB clinic.
By offering a web-based training:
We contribute to greater access to training opportunities for all staff – in the field or between missions, MSF or MoH and at any learning level.
We offer the opportunity for anyone with internet access and a computer to follow the training in their own time
We provide training resources that can be used as prerequisite or as support for other MSF trainings with HIV/TB component.
MSF and MoH clinical staff with little or no HIV knowledge/experience, who are planning to work in a setting where they will be providing clinical care to HIV positive patients. This can include doctors, clinical officers, physician assistants and nurses.
It is currently available in English. A French version is in the process of being completed in 2016
