Description

Peers living with HIV/AIDS play an essential role in engaging HIV-positive individuals in care and treatment. The unique nature of that role brings with it special considerations when integrating peers as part of the health care team. This Webcast helps participants learn to identify peer roles and responsibilities, develop training and supervision systems, and monitor and evaluate peer contributions to HIV services.

The Webcast includes speakers with experience in designing and implementing peer programs in clinics, hospitals and community-based settings to work with clients around HIV care and treatment:

  • Paul Colson, Peer Advanced Competency Training Project (PACT), Columbia University New York, NY.
  • Shalini Eddens, Lotus Project, WORLD, Oakland, CA.
  • Sally Neville, People to People project, Kansas City Free Health Clinic, Kansas City, MO.
