Trainings and Trainers Pool
Capacity building is a continuous process at EATG. One important part of our work is the development and distribution of educational materials, training modules in the countries of South Eastern Europe and the former USSR.
EATG's Capacity Building has several overall objectives:
In cooperation with our local partner organizations, EATG hold several trainings per year in countries with high HIV prevalence. The topics that have been covered since 2007 include treatment preparedness, literacy and advocacy on universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care in Europe, with particular emphasis on the projects in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Every training is designed and synchronized to complement the continued EATG Training Strategy in different parts across Europe. The overall goal of our trainings is to develop solid and up-to-date treatment knowledge and effective skills for the advocacy for access to HIV/AIDS treatment in local home communities. The objectives of the trainings aim at
- empowering people living with HIV to become skilled advocates in their local communities;
- further promoting the adherence to HIV treatment and care support across Eastern Europe and Central Asia;
- reducing stigma, health inequalities, and discrimination in the region; and
- supporting and enhancing capacity, treatment literacy and treatment advocacy strategies of local, regional, and national community-based organizations in the region.
Our trainings are designed for as many as possible people living with HIV/AIDS, their health care providers, civil society representatives and other professionals who work in the field of advocating for the universal access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care.
During 2007 - 2011, EATG organized several trainings on various topics on HIV/AIDS together with its local partners:
