HIV/AIDS Healthcare Capacity Building:

Clinical Mentoring for HIV Care and Delivery of Antiretroviral Therapy

Local Partner Organization
Healthnet TPO

Program Overview
ICEHA is working with Healthnet TPO to provide clinical mentoring in post conflict areas in Democratic Republic of Congo, and South Sudan. Ultimately, the return on investment (impact) will be greatest here as these settings start from ground zero and entire healthcare systems need to be set up again.

In all of these settings, Healthnet TPO is partnering with the local government to support a program aimed at comprehensive rehabilitation of essential health services with specific attention on sexual and reproductive health, HIV/AIDS and malaria. Despite the progress that has been made, HIV/AIDS services are only provided by a very limited number of facilities and there is a lack of basic knowledge about HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention amongst local healthcare providers. ICEHA clinical mentors will be working at clinics, hospitals, VCT centers, and PMTCT sites in each country to improve practical clinical skills and operational systems around HIV/AIDS. Prior to sending any clinical mentors to these sites a security visit will be conducted to ensure settings are appropriate for receiving clinical mentors.


  • ICEHA's first clinical mentor volunteers arrived in Burundi in August 2007.
