SummaryThe Together Educating & Advocating for Community Health Program (T.E.A.C.H Program) is implemented in partnership with Hope Centre to provide HIV/AIDS patients and their dependents with comprehensive psycho-social support and other social services.
Key program components
The program provides tailor-made HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness programs for patients that include many different aspects such as Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT). Secondly, it provides all patients and their dependents access to free confidential and high quality care and treatment through the working network of health facilities. The implementation of the program follows a structured approach and includes: * Assessment review of medical infrastructure, health-facility culture and government response, resulting in country specific cost estimations and project plans. * Implementation training, linking of clinics for provision of treatment, linking of third party administrators for the confidential administration of medical costs, a comprehensive risk assessment including HIV/AIDS prevalence testing, a Knowledge, Attitudes, Practice and Behavior survey (KAPB), focus group discussions, assessment and selection of local prevention partners, and the starting of local prevention and awareness programs. * Program management support which includes the implementation of financial and medical audits to guarantee continuous provision of quality and confidential HIV/AIDS treatment and annual program management workshops.
