Clinical Mentoring for HIV Care and Delivery of ARV Drugs

Local Partner Organization
The Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative
Lesotho Ministry of Health and Social Welfare

Program Overview
As part of a comprehensive effort by Lesotho’s Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) to combat HIV/AIDS, ICEHA is partnering with The Clinton Foundation to provide clinical mentoring to health care workers in the public healthcare system.

In order to be able to roll out antiretroviral treatment (ART) programs, the STI/HIV/AIDS Directorate in Lesotho has organized several didactic trainings in HIV care and treatment for local healthcare workers. However, practical on-site training in the provision of HIV care (including ART) is an essential component that is still needed.

ICEHA volunteers are providing this hands-on training. HIV physicians and/or nurses (with the possible addition of pharmacists and social workers) are stationed at each site to provide hands-on clinical mentoring and advanced didactic training for local staff.


  • ICEHA’s first clinical mentors arrived in November 2005.
  • In the first 6 months of the program, ICEHA clinical mentors provided hands-on training to more than 90 local healthcare providers at 10 clinics throughout the country.
  • By fall 2006, 30 ICEHA volunteers will have provided clinical mentoring to their colleagues in Lesotho.

Clinical Mentor Volunteer Needed

  • Throughout 2006 and 2007, teams of clinical mentors will be arriving in Lesotho every 6 weeks.
  • Adult and pediatric HIV specialists (MDs RNs, NPs, PAs) are needed.
  • The minimum time commitment for clinical mentors is 6 weeks. Expenses are paid and a stipend is also available for people who are available for 3+ months.
