This curriculum was developed to provide staff of NGOs and the community at large a deeper understanding of the dynamics and effects of the disease, and to sensitize them to the current issues and challenges that PLWHA face. The curriculum covers: modes of transmission, prevention, cultural and social factors that contribute to the spread of the epidemic, the immune system and disease progression and strategies for healthy living and coping with HIV/AIDS. The curriculum was designed to assist trainers in delivering a four-day workshop. The curriculum is divided into seven chapters. The introduction of each chapter provides background information for the trainers about the topic covered, and multiple activities are included.
