Uganda: Strengthening Educational Capacity for PMTCT
Jhpiego is collaborating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through CDC''s University Technical Assistance Projects (UTAP) award, to increase Uganda’s capacity for prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) service delivery. Specifically, Jhpiego is providing technical assistance to update and strengthen the PMTCT curriculum used in pre-service education for students, and the training materials used in in-service training courses for practicing service providers. Jhpiego has also assisted a nationally appointed review committee in adapting the World Health Organization’s generic PMTCT curriculum to meet Uganda’s needs. To further contribute to strengthening the country’s educational capacity for PMTCT, Jhpiego will provide technical assistance in the training of tutors and clinical preceptors in PMTCT.
About Jhpiego: For nearly 40 years, Jhpiego, (pronounced "ja-pie-go"), has empowered front-line health workers by designing and implementing simple, low-cost, hands-on solutions that strengthen the delivery of health care services, following the household-to-hospital continuum of care. We partner with community- to national-level organizations to build sustainable, local capacity through advocacy, policy and guidelines development, and quality and performance improvement approaches.
