Peer Educator Training – ITPC

Hotel Grand Orchardz, Jakarta
30 Maret – 1 April 2021

The international Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) and the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) are working together to facilitate treatment education to communities on HIV prevention, care and treatment in Fast-Track Cities.

This Training of Trainers was developed by ITPC & IAPAC and is used to strengthen the knowledge and participation of community members in HIV response, in an effort to optimize HIV prevention and treatment, and eliminate HIV-related stigma, especially in health settings that are a barrier to accessing and utilizing HIV services. Participants in this training consisted of 15 community members who are at the forefront of HIV prevention.

This partnership supports efforts to strengthen knowledge and facilitate meaningful engagement of people living with HIV and their communities in the HIV response and in the context of the Paris Declaration on a fast track city to end the AIDS epidemic. This political statement signed by the mayor or other elected official binds the city / regency to meet the goals and targets of Fast-Track Cities, including Jakarta. As a commitment from the DKI Jakarta Government, this event was also attended by dr. Pramono from the DKI Jakarta Provincial Health Office.

Topics covered in this training included knowledge of HIV infection, treatment, monitoring of treatment and prevention of HIV infection. In addition, participants were also given information on advocacy for increased access to quality and non-stigmatizing HIV care.

In its implementation, ITPC and IAPAC collaborate with local organizations in each of the Fast-Track Cities, where for Indonesia, ITPC and IAPAC collaborate with the Peduli Hati Bangsa Foundation and the Positive Indonesia Network.

The facilitator of this training is dr. Bactrin Kilingo and Helen Etyaale from the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) and Caroline Thomas as co-facilitators from the Peduli Hati Bangsa Foundation.
