Keeping up-to-date on new advances and information in medical care is critical for frontline health workers, yet access to quality professional development is often challenging for individuals with limited resources. Accredited eLearning courses can address this challenge. Drawing from real-life experiences at the regional and country levels, webinar presenters will offer tips and tricks for navigating the accreditation process and ensuring that training curriculum, specifically that of eLearning courses, meets the requirements of local regulatory bodies.
This toolkit was developed to build capacity of technical assistance providers and managers at the service delivery level. It contains a suite of existing tools and resources to address site-level health workforce performance and productivity problems impacting HIV service delivery.

People infected and affected by HIV face multiple, far-reaching barriers every day – from structural barriers affecting their access to services and care, to societal and scientific barriers keeping them from enjoying healthy, safe, and full lives. We highlight some of these barriers, and what innovative approaches are being developed to bridge them.
