Clinical Mentoring for HIV Care and Delivery of Antiretroviral Therapy
ICEHA will be operational in Congo Brazzaville in 2008. The organization will enter the Congo by invitation of the Congolese Ministry of Health (MOH).
Collaboration Congo Brazzaville MOH-ICEHA: Under the MOH-ICEHA collaboration, ICEHA is providing clinical mentoring to health providers at HIV clinics in Congo Brazzaville. Antiretroviral medications are now available through the public sector, however one of the chief obstacles remains the lack of trained doctors and nurses capable of carrying the patient load and administering ARV therapy. Given that clinical mentoring methods are by far the most effective method of rapid scale-up of a healthcare system, the Ministry of Health has requested ICEHA’s assistance in its national endeavor. As a direct result of the clinical mentoring, HIV care and ARV medication will be provided to patients who need it in a clinically justified manner.
Volunteer teams comprising senior HIV doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and social workers will be stationed at sites around the country.
