Training Module for HIV Education Outreach

It is critical to "get the word out" about HIV far and wide.  People at risk need to know how to prevent it.  People suffering from HIV need to know about livesaving treatment.  LifeRise Executive Director, Dr. Cynthia Calla, has developed a training module, HIV Education Outreach:  Sharing the 4 Most Important Messages About HIV, with the Global CHE Network as a tool for educating people about HIV. Also, see EDUCATION.

Guidelines and Training Module for Providing Supportive Care

All people living with HIV (PLWH) in the world need to be on lifesaving HIV treatment (called ART). Once started on treatment, PLWH are on it lifelong.  PLWH need supportive care to stay on ART.

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 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 adhere to ART, stay in medical care, and become stable lifelong on treatment.  The clubs also provide community delivery of ART, close to home where people live.

Dr. Calla has also developed a training module, Supportive Care for People on HIV Treatment, with the Global CHE Network to train Christian volunteers to provide supportive care for PLWH to be stable on treatment.

Also, see Treatment.

Opportunities for HIV/AIDS Christian Ministry

Dr. Calla wrote the attached paper to mobilize the church to respond to the future of HIV/AIDS treatment.
