Guidelines and Training Modules

LifeRise Executive Director, Dr. Cynthia Calla, has developed guidelines for churches and Christian ministries to facilitate adherence clubs, a special type of support group for people living with HIV (PLWH) -- Adherence Clubs:  An Essential Strategy To Care for People Living with HIV, Guidelines for Churches and Christian Ministries.  Adherence clubs provide supportive care to help PLWH to become stable on lifesaving HIV treatment and stay on it lifelong. Also, see TREATMENT.

Dr. Calla has also written two HIV training modules with the Global CHE Network.  The first training module  HIV Education Outreach:  Sharing the 4 Most Important Messages About HIV is to share in villages and with other groups to "get the word out" about the most important things to know about HIV.  Also, see EDUCATION.

The second CHE training module Supportive Care for People on HIV Treatment is to train Christian volunteers to provide supportive care for people living with HIV to help them to be stable on treatment. Also, see TREATMENT.
