New internet resource facilitates international HIV/AIDS healthcare provider training

A major barrier to access to care for HIV/AIDS patients in resource limited settings -- the lack of trained healthcare providers -- is now eased with the launch of an internet-based clinical training resource database.

The Global HIV/AIDS Clinical Training Materials Database is produced by the International Training and Education Center on HIV/AIDS (I-TECH), a joint project of UCSF and the University of Washington.

"We are providing online the latest clinical training curricula specifically tailored for international settings, and in some cases individualized for particular countries, in easily accessible formats. A facilitator can download these materials and immediately start training medical officers, nurses, pharmacists or other healthcare providers on how to care for and treat a person with HIV/AIDS," said I-TECH co-director E. Michael Reyes, MD, MPH, UCSF associate professor of family and community medicine.

Launched in early October with initial funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the web-based database is located at http://www.go2itech.org/. It is a compilation of clinical training materials from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration HIV/AIDS Bureau, the CDC, the World Health Organization and other partners of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), plus over 300 other multilateral, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations from around the world. I-TECH will continue to update the database with new materials.

The resource database has been developed in collaboration with the UCSF Center for HIV Information (CHI), which has developed and maintains several websites. These include HIV InSite at http://hivinsite.ucsf.edu, an award-winning HIV/AIDS global information source on basic science, treatment, prevention and policy; http://whatudo.org, a youth-oriented site on HIV prevention and education; and
