AIDSFree Webinar: Launching the Online Lopinavir/Ritonavir Pellet Toolkit

LPV/r) Pellet Toolkit

Please join USAID's Strengthening High Impact Interventions for an AIDS-free Generation (AIDSFree) Project on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, to launch the Lopinavir/Ritonavir (LPV/r) Pellet Toolkit. This toolkit was developed by AIDSFree with the support of CHAI, DNDi and PEPFAR/Nigeria.

LPV/r pellets are a new formulation of a pediatric HIV medicine. The LPV/r Pellet Toolkit provides clinical information for health care workers related to dosing and administration of the medication, as well as resources to use when working with patients’ caregivers. The toolkit also contains guidance for Ministry of Health staff and other stakeholders on health system considerations for planning, implementing, and managing national rollout of LPV/r pellets.

In this webinar, presenters will demonstrate the functionality of the toolkit and review the resources and tools in these two core sections (Health Care Workers and Rollout Planning and Management), as well as ancillary content. Presenters will also discuss the development process for the online toolkit and materials that were incorporated. There will be time at the end for presenters to respond to questions submitted via Adobe Connect.

The webinar will take place on Adobe Connect; a link to the webinar will be distributed to all registrants prior to the webinar.
