HIV/AIDS training programme debuts


HA NOI — An online training programme on HIV/AIDS control for medical doctors and experts, the first of its kind in Viet Nam, has been launched.

The programme aims to provide opportunities for Vietnamese and German HIV/AIDS experts to exchange experiences, especially solutions to problems that Viet Nam faces in the medical treatment and care of HIV/AIDS patients.

The four-month programme includes online forums conducted by experts from the German Human Resources Development Organisation (inWEnt) in association with the Viet Nam Development Gate (VNDG).

Hans Ulrich Fuhrke, inWEnt regional co-ordinator, said that the programme will create a cyber forum for 40 trainees, who are also scheduled to attend a five-day workshop in early August to develop their own projects.

Trainees will be grouped together by professional interest and they will receive specific guidelines on professional HIV/AIDS control project execution after finishing the course.

inWEnt has also been working on a co-operation programme in distance and online training with the Ha Noi Medical College. — VNS
